Need advice about video in app
I develop the Qml app, which show video from remote servers by use Wi-Fi connection . But Qml Video element is not convenient - I have any difficulties, for example I don't now how to manage buffer size. Remote videofiles are play, but periodical stoped, and through a few seconds(2-3) playing continues. Also I can’t set volume – property “volume” "is not active in symbian":http://doc.qt.nokia.com/qtmobility-1.2/qml-soundeffect.html#volume-prop. What can I use to show online video except Qml Video element? Make videoplayer by use Qt C++?
QMediaPlayer (Qt, part of Mobility package)
- You can use QMediaPlayer to output on a widget.
- You can write your "CustomVideo" item for QML using QMediaPlayer.
Thanks. About custom element...can you tell more?)
You are not restricted to use the items that come with QML, Rectangle, Image etc.
You can write your own items.
Unfortunately, QMediaPlayer has same problem with playing stream video, like Video Element in Qml.
I tried to use phonon module, but it also play stream video incorrectly...Now I'm sure in impossibility of build app in Qt SDK with streaming videoplayer.
There is a one method - just open url in native video player, " here is showed.":http://www.developer.nokia.com/Community/Blogs/blog/aleksandr-trufanovs-forum-nokia-blog/2011/02/14/launching-symbian-media-player-for-video-streaming-in-qt-project
