QMediaPlayer: defaultServiceProvider::requestService(): no service found for - "org.qt-project.qt.mediaplayer" (Ubuntu)

  • Hello. I installed Qt 5.7 using official installer on Ubuntu 16.04 and 14.04. In both systems I have problem with Qt Multimedia:

    defaultServiceProvider::requestService(): no service found for - "org.qt-project.qt.mediaplayer"

    GStreamer has been installed. Where is the problem? Please help.

  • I tried to use system version of Qt, and examples work in it. But what if I want to use newer Qt version?

    Which version of GStreamer did you install ? Did you also install the plugin packages ?

  • I installed gstreamer0.10 with plugins, and it has started to work. But can I use gstreamer1? System version of Qt uses gstreamer 1.

    You may have to rebuild Qt Multimedia (only that module) to use GStreamer 1.0.

  • Hi,my english is poor.this is a simple way to sovle this problem on linux.
    1.> sudo apt-get install libqt5multimedia5-plugins
    2.> cp -a /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/qt5/plugins/mediaservice/ /your/path/to/Qt5/.../gcc_64/plugins/
    The main purpose is to avoid recompiling the QtMultimedia module.if you want to recompiling the QtMultimedia module.you should:
    1.> install required gstreamer
    2.> cd /your/path/to/Qt5/.../Src/qtmultimedia
    3.> qmake && make
    4.> make install
    2.> cd /your/path/to/Qt5/.../Src/qtmultimedia/src/plugins/gstreamer
    3.> qmake && make
    4.> make install
    The second method of failure probability is very large.Depending on whether your gstreamer installed correctly.

    @Gnenux Your first suggestion is not a real solution, you are mixing plugins from different Qt versions built with potentially different options.
