[Interest] Bundle multimedia codecs with application

Hi all,

is it possible to bundle multimedia codecs with a Qt application? I want to
use QtMultimedia to play all sort of different video formats.
Unfortunately, QtMultimedia doesn't recognize all of the video formats out
of the box, which requires me to install a codec pack (e.q K-Lite Codec
pack) first.

As I am not a big fan of external depenendencies, I would prefer to bundle
the necessary codecs with my application. Is that somehow possible?

I also looked at other projects like QtAV or vlc-qt (to replace
QtMultimedia), but at some point I always ran into playback/API bugs (which
I couldn't fix myself) . So I am back at QtMultimedia, which uses a well
tested interface that just works. The only thing I am not happy about are
the codecs that need to be installed first. Is there a possibility to
bundle them with the application?
