Embed MPlayer in QMainWindow

  • I wrote this code:

    #include "mainwindow.h"
    #include <QApplication>
    #include <QProcess>
    int main(int argc, char *argv[])
        QApplication a(argc, argv);
        MainWindow w;
        QProcess *process = new QProcess;
        QString s;
        s = QString("mplayer -wid %1 %2").arg(w.winId()).arg("/home/debian/Desktop/video.mp4");
        return a.exec();

    And it works well on my i386 Ubuntu VM, it embeds MPlayer in Qt MainWindow and plays video as expected, but thats not the case when I try to run the same program on my BeagleBone Black running under Debian Jessie. What can be the problem? I tried to use different display drivers (fbdev and modesetting), also tried changing platforms when running my application and it acts the same.

    I figured out that I have error in my /var/log/Xorg.0.log file: "(EE) FBDEV(0): FBIOPUTCMAP: Invalid argument"
