It also seems complicated to a video rendering novice. I quickly looked
at QGraphicsVideoItem and on first glance I'm somewhat lost on the new
terminology. With gstreamer and xvimagesink all I needed was to connect
to existing widgets I've already have experience with. With this
solution, it seems I have to delve into understanding video mapping
techniques and opengl, something that previously was hidden in a nice
Is there a pointer to somewhere I can read up on "texture streaming" and
the other concepts going on here? The qt-mobility docs I've seen seem
to assume some pre-existing knowledge.
