I try to embed a small tutorial video into my application but I get following error:

[W] QGstreamerPlayerSession::play:801 - GStreamer; Unable to play - "file:///usr/share/harbour-qremotecontrol/qml/tutorial/browser_qremote.mp4" 
[W] QGstreamerPlayerSession::play:801 - GStreamer; Unable to play - "file:///usr/share/harbour-qremotecontrol/qml/tutorial/browser_qremote.mp4" 

[W] QGstreamerPlayerSession::processBusMessage:1223 - Error: "Internal data stream error."

The code I use:

    Video {
    source: "browser_qremote.mp4"
    autoPlay: true
    onStopped: play()
    width: parent.width
    //height: 100
    height: 200

The video files I tested it with:

The first video is MPEG4 encoded the second one H.264. Both videos work inside QML on my desktop computer.

EDIT: I tried it again with a VP8 encoded Webm video here it explicitly outputs a codec error -> the above errors have probably nothing to do with unsupported codecs.

[W] QGstreamerPlayerSession::processBusMessage:1202 - Warning: "No decoder available for type 'video/x-vp8, width=(int)304, height=(int)156, framerate=(fraction)30/1'."

If you want a quicker answers involving development I would suggest asking it on the IRC Channel.


Name: just pick a name Channels: #SailfishOS And just type on captcha and connect. If you ask there you are very likely to get your answer in few minutes. And if you want to post code use pastebin or http://pastebin.kde.org/

I have no answer to the question but as a workaround and for better platform compatibility instead of the small video a gif image and AnimatedImage can be used. Still it would be good to know what problem the Video item has.
