[Interest] QtMultimedia examples don't play video on all systems?

I've built the video examples that come with the 5.1.0 beta 
("videowidget" and "player").  They are unable to play video when 
running the *.exe in a VMWare environment running XP and 7.  It works 
fine on a native Windows 7 environment with the NVidia drivers 
installed.  The same videos play just fine in Windows Media Player 
inside VMWare, so since QtMultimedia also uses DirectShow, I assume it 
should be working fine.

What causes that?
