    Most of Linux distributions provide packages of GStreamer. You should find these in your distribution's package repository. If not, download the latest source and build it, it should be straight fwd.

    Just configure and build Qt with phonon support, it will find out the beckend for gstreamer automatically.

    Thanks..

    so fedora 9 already contains gstreamer support right?

    ./configure -phonon

    Is this correct?

    Thanks,

    Yes , Go ahead. Better refer INSTALL, README. For all possible config options, so only one time configuration is required.

  5. The following user says thank you to yogeshgokul for this useful post:

    When i configure using

    ./configure -phonon

    it configured for few minutes and showing some report.. I dunno what to do.. Kindly check it and help me..

    It is showing..

    Phonon support cannot be enabled due to functionality tests!
    Turn on verbose messaging (-v) to ./configure to see the final report.
    If you believe this message is in error you may use the continue
    switch (-continue) to ./configure to continue.
    [root@localhost qt-x11-opensource-src-4.5.2]#


    Kindly help

    Try installing packages gstreamer-devel and gstreamer-plugins-base-devel or similar.

    Then perhaps you should learn the basics of your distribution before you try to start programming there?

    I don't use Fedora myself but I'd guess it's more or less something like this:
    Qt Code:
    1. sudo yum install gstreamer-devel gstreamer-plugins-base-devel
    To copy to clipboard, switch view to plain text mode 
    or use the graphical front end. I'm not even 100% sure about the package names, use the tools of your distribution to search for them.

    You should have NOT run "qmake -project". The example already had a properly working .pro file. Restore the original .pro file from the tarball and leave out the "qmake -project" step this time.

    Or you just add
    Qt += phonon
    in your .pro file.

    If you want to add phonon module, just add above line.

    Even basic examples are not running properly(not phonon)

    .pro is already created in QT examples..

    I just did

    qmake application.pro
    qmake
    ./application

    But when i give ./application to run, it throws an error that

    "Cannot connect to the X server"

    Kindly help me..

    Why 2 times, you are calling "qmake" ?
    "qmake" never builds your project.
    Would have called "make".
    Please, refer QtAssistant, I think you require some basics.

    This means you are not using qmake from Qt/X11 4.5.2 as you claim, but from Qt for Embedded Linux. What does "qmake -v" output?
