Qt application for smart TV



  • Hi all,
    I'd like to port my Qt QML application to a smart TV but it's not very clear what smart TV supports Qt.

    Does Qt application built for Android smartphone is compatible with Android TV ?

    What about Tizen or WebOS ?

    Thanks!

    Luca

    this depends on the used system and architecture.

    yes. You might just need some adaptions in the manifest.

    What about Tizen or WebOS ?

    Both not officially supported.
    But see this for WebOS (which is almost dead by now)
    And this and this for Tizen. But i don't know how active the Qt-Tizen community still is...

    What modification should I do to my app's Manifest?
    At the moment I'm using default Manifest created by QtCreator and I can run my app on any Android smartphone.

    actually you should already be able to install your app on AndroidTV (assuming the architecture is correct - ARM/x86).
    But if you want to display it in the (AndroidTV-)Play Store and on the AndroidTV start screen (see "Leanback") you need to mark it as AndroidTV ready.
    Honestly i've not tried it yet.
    But take a look at this.



  • @raven-worx Useful link!
    It seems quite simple to port from smartphone to Android TV.

    I'll try!

    Thanks!

    maybe you can report back your results/findings, so it may help others later on?



  • @raven-worx Sure!
