    Well, first you'd have to plug the HDMI cable into the phone.

    not only the cable... the screen too should be attached to the HDMI at the other end...

    now seriously... because that will determine to try out Qt... now I'm publishing WRTs on ovi, and its going well...

    Well, I can't figure out what you want. Obviously, you can't plug an HDMI cable into most existing phones (maybe there's one somewhere ...). You can, however, plug a video cable into some Symbian phones (through the headphone jack) and feed a regular video monitor. And there are no doubt protocol converters available that will convert this signal into HDMI. However, it will still be 360x640 or whatever.

    Now, if you want to do this on a laptop/desktop PC and generate higher resolution images then you should be in the Qt General forum, not here.

    Exactly where are you and where do you want to be? The video output is a hardware function -- has nothing to do with Qt.

    Re: it is possible to output HD through HDMI cable?

    ok, video output is a HW function...
    can I access that function trough Qt?

    it is possible to make an Qt application 1280x720 and see all the pixels on a big screen (LCD HD)?

    Yes, it is possible, but not without accessing OS specific APIs. Open library.forum.nokia.com and search for HDMI, then learn about graphics surface management.
