Qt 5.6 WebEngine problem with custom FlashPLayer locations
According to Qt 5.6 › Qt WebEngine › Qt WebEngine Platform Notes › Adobe Flash Player Plugin Support (section) :
You can also load the Flash player from a specific location by using command line arguments:
...but it is not working.
Suggestion in the first paragraph works though:
"The Adobe Flash player plugin can be loaded automatically if it is installed in one of the following locations, depending on the platform:"
If I copy to default path (that is also searched by WebEngine it works...
I mean using custom path works if I do it from command line too like:
but it is not working when I do it in code like:
QApplication a(argc, my_argv); qDebug() << "my_argv: " << qApp->arguments(); // ("C:\\temp\\app.exe", "--ppapi-flash-path=./pepflashplayer.dll")
so my_argv should be passed down to WebEngine but not honored
Is this a known bug in WebEngine...
The only possibility left is that Chromuim doesn't use QApplication's argv and relies on arguments retrieved by GetCommandLine()
My question is - is this a bug or it is by design and what is the point of having qApp->arguments() if they aren't passed to QWebEngine?
I opened a bug report QTBUG-51971
