I need to play some videos in a QML ui using hardware accelleration
through NVidia's VDPAU API.
VDPAU support is installed and I can use it on mplayer (with a huge cpu
usage saving), with this command:
mplayer -vo vdpau -vc ffh264vdpau video.mp4
Playing h264 video with native QML Video element (QtMultimediaKit),
gstreamer backend says to me: "Ignoring VDPAU decoder h264_vdpau. We can't
handle this outside of ffmpeg".
I think I need to embed mplayer into a QML widget implementing also OpenGL
Has someone already done the same or can just give me some advice about

Thanks in advance.
