Qt5 Video Playback using XCB Backend

Has anybody successfully played video in the QtMultimediaWidgets player application while using the xcb backend? I've found a number of posts regarding video playback in Qt5 with the VPU acceleration, but most of them seem to require disabling X11.

When I try using XCB, the video simply hangs while loading the video:

root@imx6qsabresd:~# /usr/share/qt5/examples/multimediawidgets/player/player /BigBuckBunny.avi

Qt Warning: Could not find a location of the system's Compose files. Consider setting the QTCOMPOSE environment variable.

If I set GST_DEBUG=2, I get the following warning over and over again:

aiurdemux /home/justin/work/yocto/build/tmp/work/imx6qsabresd-poky-linux-gnueabi/gst-fsl-plugin/3.0.11-r0/gst-fsl-plugins-3.0.11/src/parser/aiur/src/aiurdemux.c:4095:aiurdemux_push_pad_buffer: Pad video push error type -4

The same video plays fine using gplay, playbin2, and a standard manual gstreamer pipeline. I'm using the head of line for all of the metalayers (include meta-qt5). I synced the repo yesterday. I did have to disable the gstreamer1.0 patches (I'm using gstreamer 0.10) in the qtmultimedia recipe.

We are in some projects, for customers, using QtMultimedia. In our case we used the QML based plugin and it works fine.

Check the qmlvideofx or similar and see if it works for you.

Thank you very much for the reply.

The qmlvideofx player does seem to work. Any clue as to why the non-QML version hangs? I think we can work with the QML-based version moving forward, but understanding the limitations/shortcomings of the other player will be helpful in future projects.

I didn't investigate as our customer is using QML.
