Phonon internal backend

  • Hi everybody,

    I'm working on a project for my current company and I have to work with Qt Phonon. We got an already existing code and I need to understand which backend is internally used by Phonon itself.

    Moreover I need to know if (I think so) an internal buffer is used when MediaObject::setCurrentSource(..) is used when passing just a simple URL as parameter.

    I didn't find any documentation about this. Can someone give me some hints?

    I am using Qt 4.8 and Qt Creator.

    @msticco In general it is better to ask Phonon/Qt developers such questions. This forum is more for developers using Qt not developing it.

    Im not a Qt dev but I will answer OPs question:
    Im also using QtCreator and every time I need help, Im referring to Google. It seems Stack Overflow has pretty decent answer-base regarding Qt* problems.

    Hi and welcome to devnet,

    IIRC, the phonon backend in use was configurable by the user.

    AFAIK, the most knowledgeable people about that tech can be found amongst the KDE folks.
