what widget is used for video overlay drawing?



  • if i want to show a movie, but also show animated graphics on top of it, what "overlay" widget do i use for that? i'm using these things to show the movie:

    		QMediaPlayer		*mediaPlayer = new QMediaPlayer(NULL, QMediaPlayer::VideoSurface);
    		QGraphicsVideoItem	*videoItem = new QGraphicsVideoItem();
    		QGraphicsView		*graphicsView = new QGraphicsView(new QGraphicsScene(this));
    

    what do i use to draw graphics over the movie, and retain hardware acceleration? is there a sample project for that?

    @davecotter
    just stack any QGraphicsItem above your QGraphicsVideoItem? Or did you encounter any issues with that approach?
