Now that we got a backend for QtMultimedia with Qt 4.6.3 I am wondering whether I am the only one who as serious problems using it. I wasted the last two days trying to port my little sample application: http://wiki.forum.nokia.com/index.php/QtKeyboard to the multimedia api as promised.
Yesterday I got something working on the desktop but when playing around today with the device I found out that "pull"-mode during audio output is not working on symbian. This is not a so big surprise for me because I found a similar behaviour on Mac but in the other direction (audioinput).
Of course both behaviours have been reported:
Both behaviours are not documented...of course
ATM I am pissed of and have to release some steam because I cannot understand how features that where announced in 4.6.0 and only delivered in 4.6.3 where not tested at all before the release given the extra time. I wonder how it long takes till we get a usable development environment that does what the documentation says. I mean, I would like to invest more time in developing for nokia devices but currently it is not investing but wasting. I tried all of them: 4.6.0, 4.6.1, 4.6.2 and with 4.6.3 I thought I could finaly use multimedia. But no, they fooled me again. Notice that there was no official statement that the multimedia backend was missing in 4.6.0-4.6.2 at all.
So I raise the question: Who else uses this API? Maybe there is ways to work around all that problems? Maybe you use your own wrapper around the native symbian API as I did with the original keyboard application?
