Compiling QMultiMedia with WMF
jsmolka last edited by
I am currently writing an mp3 player in which I use the QMultiMedia. The precompiled MinGW version comes with DirectShow as backend and I would like to recompile QMultiMedia using the Windows Media Foundation because DirectShow is causing some problem (not playing mp3 files with big covers).
When I try to build the WMF backend from the directory 'qtmultimedia\src\plugins\wmf' I get the following error:
'Library 'wmf' is not defined.'
Is there a way to use the WMF backend with MinGW?

You can not build the WMF backend because MinGW does not have the WMF backend header. Currently only MSVC versions are available.

Thank you, seems like I need to switch compiler.
