Qt Multimedia is actively maintained, yes, but lately we have been 
focusing more on mending platform gaps and improving the DirectShow 
backend than on inventing new features, since we think it's important to 
make the current APIs work well before we develop new ones.

I do know that there are bugs coming in that we would like to fix but 
have not had time for yet, so maybe it's currently progressing a bit 
slower than you would prefer. We hope to improve this by increasing the 
focus in the time to come.
