No, that was not in the doc. http://qt-project.org/doc/qt-5/qvideoprobe.html
This is some seriously distressing news. Basically, I what you are telling me is can't build my app in Qt.
I need Camera and MediaPlayer for iOS, Android, Linux and Windows. This, I thought was the promise of Qt 5.2! I've been using Qt for some time (since version 2) and Qt has always earned high marks from me for feature parity between platforms.
"If it's not supported it doesn't necessarily mean it's not possible to do it on a given platform, it can mean that it's not currently implemented." that and $1.40 will get you a coffee at Starbucks. Now I've got to explain to my boss that I've wasted a week, and I have to come up with some solution way outside my comfort zone.
This there any work being done to make it have feature parity or is this 'it'?

2c. using (passing) a Camera element as sourceObj, what will happen?
>It will also work.
That was in theory. In practice, it depends on the platform. QVideoProbe is not available on all of them (or only for either a media player or a camera).
It should be in the doc, but here's an overview of QVideoProbe support:
Android: only for camera
Blackberry: no support
iOS: no support
Linux: only for media player
Mac: no support
Windows: only for media player
If it's not supported it doesn't necessarily mean it's not possible to do it on a given platform, it can mean that it's not currently implemented.
