QtMultimedia cross compiling is missing

  • Hi,
    I am working on QT cross compilation to beaglbone like platform, when i try to disply video on my HMI screen, i have croos compilied all gstreamer related package, this is include glib, zlib, gst-plugin-base, orc, libffi and gst-libav.
    QT configurationidentify gstreamer version 1.0 and enable it. but when I run make for compilation, it cannot identify gstreamer.
    I also cann see the line "checking for gstreamer... no"

    please advice,
    best regards,

    Add -v to configure to see where the gstreamer test is failing. Probably not finding your cross-compiled gstreamer

  • @SGaist - my ./configure is already in verbos mode, the only notification during compilation about gstreamer is the one that I have mention above,
    "checking for gstreamer... no"

    You need to take a look at the tests output and find the gstreamer part

  • @SGaist - Hi again
    this is the test output

    GStreamer 1.0 auto-detection... ()

    GStreamer 1.0 enabled.

    looks like my cross compiling taking files from the wrong location for gstremer.
    is there any enviorenment flags for outside packages that i need to set for cross compiling?

    What's your configuration line ?

    Surprisingly It says GStreamer is enabled

  • @SGaist - Right, but when compilation is running, it recheck for gstreamer and decide to not compile it.
    As I mention above, this line is from compilation
    "checking for gstreamer... no"

    What version of Qt is it ? GStreamer 1.0 support is pretty recent so you might have to enable it when configuring depending on your Qt version
