    Default WebEngine custom plugin path

    I want to specify a custom plugin directory for QtWebEngine, since I want to create a non-installed plugin for my portable browser.

    I have looked through the documentation and can see that QtWebEngine uses Chrome's installed plugins, but I don't want to assume Chrome's previous installation.

    Previously with QtWebKit an environmental variable (QTWEBKIT_PLUGIN_PATH) could be set to achieve this... Now, I don't know anymore.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks!



    Qt 5.7, Win10

    See if you can make it go using the information here:
    http://doc.qt.io/qt-5/qtwebengine-fe...per-plugin-api
    There are specific options for loading the Pepper Flash plugin from a particular location and generic options for other plugins. You may need a wrapper exe or script to inject the extra commandline options.

  3. The following user says thank you to ChrisW67 for this useful post:
