I haven't done consumer products for the last two years and I would
be happy if the following has changed. I had to listen things like:
"GDB is not supported on this device" (because the SoC vendor didn't
put a binary into the "SDK")...
Anyway, if "gst-launch playbin uri=file:///music.mp3" works and the
same doesn't work with Qt.. you have a hard time arguing that their
system is broken. That is the difference of working in the comfort
zone with a sane Linux system and going out in the field and see
what the companies actually use.
I don't have the spare time to work on multimedia things, so it is
really just my two cents.
