    Packaging a sound effect in the application resources for use with QMediaPlayer


    I'm writing an application for N9 that needs to play a sound saved as a .wav file, using QMediaPlayer. I thought I'd add the sound file to the application resources for easy packaging, but when I do that, the application crashes when the sound is attempted to be played (no sound is heard). If the file is saved in a directory and referenced to as a local file, everything works.

    That is, if I use


    I get the segfault, whereas using


    I don't. I couldn't find anything useful with the debugger.

    Has anybody experienced similar problems? Should the resource-based approach work at all?

    Correct, QMediaPlayer cannot play any file stored in the Qt resource system.
    It doesn't work because QMedaiPlayer internally makes use of GStreamer Multimedia Framework [1], which cannot handle/fetch data from QRC files.
