Approach for a museum video player and selector



  • I've been asked to do a UI for a video selector in a museum. There would be a big screen in which a video is played, and a little tactile monitor with which people would interact by touching one of the thumbnails of the videos, and these are played on the big screen. I've thought about building it using Qt quick, but I've got no previous experience with it, and I'm a little lost.
    I have little UI design background, but I know some C++, so I decided to build it with Qt. What direction should I take in order to build it?



  • Hi.... depends on where everything system has to run..
    Window/Linux/mac tablet..
    media file for intranet is normal in a intranet server... RTSP/RTP streaming ... or webdav dir... and a remote xml file to reference file e other on supported language file link all media video or image slide + music
    Most compatible, to separate UI & C++ library..
    on QML QT5 I have seen is like HTML code & javascript and all i possibel to port in mobile device .. or tablet for ...
    also 1 video & 5 or + language audio
    try to build on cmake the qtmodule https://github.com/wang-bin/QtAV this can do a simple job for you.... like Subtitle track select ....

    Play with Qt and some UI in QML, try the examples, experiment by yourself...
    Then do the software, I don't see much hard to to overcome difficulties in your project. You'll just have to learn and do the work.

    Qt Quick seems like a good fit for this. If I were asked to write your project, that's what I would choose at least.



  • @GrecKo thanks for your comment. I've managed to create the window in which people would touch the video, but I'm not sure how to make the player. I've seen there is a library, Qt media, but I don't really know how to bind it with the other screen.
