FFmpeg VS LibVLC VS Others
I am trying to create a basic media player.
But I do not want to use the MediaPlayer from Qt5 because it relies on the codecs installed on the computer.
I tried for several days to install FFmpeg in my Qt project without any success. I was kinda lost in that huge lib...
Now I start to think about LibVLC and also VLC-QT.
Which lib would you recommend ?
I know my question is kinda vague but guys I am really lost, I tried so many thing without any results ! I have never been this frustrated coding !
Thank you all !
I fooled around quickly with
and found it pretty smooth
It even has good samples
with a mini player to start on.
So my vote goes to VLC-QT but to be fair I have not tried FFmpeg.
Why not try to download it and see how fast u can have the example running.
Also doc seems ok and it has custom widgets to just use.
Thank you both !
I tried to use those two librairies / project.
I did not succeed.
I am used to Unix development and now I am coding on a Windows computer. For the last 2 weeks I was practicing Qt on Visual Studio but I had a lot of problem with that.
So now I use the Qt ide.
I don't really know how to use those lib with windows, I kinda miss GCC and the terminal, so simple ! Also I have a lot of trouble trying to build binaries using CMake. Even QMake does not work for VLC-QT lib.
Anyway I believe those libs work fine. I just need to find how use them properly on windows / Qt ide
What error are you getting exactly ? What have you tried ? What has failed ?
