Binaries for POT 5.1.0 With Remote Streaming Support

This is an experimental build of POT 5.1.0 including support for remote streaming. I tested it for HTTP/HTTPS with YouTube but it should work with other protocols supported by ffmpeg as well.

In case someone is interested in testing it please let me know. This is a build for Pi2 on Qt 5.6.0-beta1. To quickly test you can use POCPlayer:

./piomxtextures_pocplayer ""

The streaming should start right away.

Download here the build for Pi2 on Qt 5.6.0-beta1 (extraction code is: bfc7).

Have fun! Bye ;-)

Binaries for Hardware Accelerated Qt 5.6.0-beta1 Multimedia Backend on Raspbian Jessie (POT 5.2.0)

This new build is identical to the previous one but includes a few changes in the library:

  • Bump to ffmpeg from 2.7.2 to 2.8.5 to fix some rare crashes.
  • Multiple fixes that were causing bug #51.
  • Other minor fixes.
Download PiOmxTextures 5.2.0 for Raspbian Jessie Pi2 here (extraction code is: cd4f).

Please file bug reports in case of issues and have fun! Bye ;-)

NOTE: If you need to test the samples please keep in mind that Qt 5.6.0 seems to have changed the order of the params to provide to qmlscene: the qml file must appear at the end.
