Cannot use QtMultimedia in Qt Creator (Windows)
I am using the designer within QtCreater to attempt to create a proof-of-concept video stream player with QML. It's using Quick Controls rather than widgets as it will need to run on a device with no widgets available.
I've successfully put a one-pixel red border on the screen edges with an empty rectangle inside it (rectangles withing column layout within row layout) as a simple start. This runs both under Windows and on the device I intend to deploy to.
However, I want to replace the empty rectangle with a video player control and I'm having trouble figuring out how to do that, initially for Windows.

qml quickthat my
QTvariable was set to in
ProjName.profile, and I've run
qmakefrom the menu to ensure it's been actioned.
However, when I then use QtCreator to try and import the module while editing the main form in the designer, I can see nothing containing the word "multimedia" at all. All I see is:
Qt.labs.calendar 1.0 Qt.labs.controls 1.0 Qt.labs.controls.material 1.0 Qt.labs.controls.universal 1.0 Qt.labs.folderlistmodel 2.1 Qt.labs.settings 1.0 Qt.labs.templates 1.0 QtCanvas3D 1.1 QtGraphicalEffects.private 1.0 QtPositioning 5.6 QtQuick.Controls 1.5 QtQuick.Extras 1.4 QtQuick.LocalStorage 2.0 QtQuick.Window 2.2 QtQuick.XmlListModel 2.0 QtSensors 5.6 QtTest 1.1 QtWebSockets 1.0 QtWebView 1.1
I can manually edit the
MainForm.ui.qmlfile and insert
import QtMultimedia 5.6into it but, when the designer comes back up, it has an alert next to the top level control with the help text:
found not working imports: file:///C:/path-to/MainForm.ui.qml:2 module "QtMultimedia" is not installed
This is all with QtCreator 4.0.1 as downloaded from Qt's site about a month ago, and we're using Qt 5.6.1 on both Windows and the target platform.
All the solutions I found on the net seem to indicate that the
importis all that's needed but this appears not to be the case here.
Any ideas what I'm doing wrong, or what is the process for getting one of the QtMultimedia controls running within a QML app?
