Detailed Description

The QMediaPlaylist class provides a list of media content to play.

QMediaPlaylist is intended to be used with other media objects, like QMediaPlayer.

QMediaPlaylist allows to access the service intrinsic playlist functionality if available, otherwise it provides the local memory playlist implementation.

playlist = new QMediaPlaylist;
playlist->addMedia(QUrl("http://example.com/movie1.mp4"));
playlist->addMedia(QUrl("http://example.com/movie2.mp4"));
playlist->addMedia(QUrl("http://example.com/movie3.mp4"));
playlist->setCurrentIndex(1);

player = new QMediaPlayer;
player->setPlaylist(playlist);

videoWidget = new QVideoWidget;
player->setVideoOutput(videoWidget);
videoWidget->show();

player->play();

Depending on playlist source implementation, most of the playlist mutating operations can be asynchronous.

Member Type Documentation

enum QMediaPlaylist::Error

This enum describes the QMediaPlaylist error codes.

ConstantValueDescription
QMediaPlaylist::NoError0No errors.
QMediaPlaylist::FormatError1Format error.
QMediaPlaylist::FormatNotSupportedError2Format not supported.
QMediaPlaylist::NetworkError3Network error.
QMediaPlaylist::AccessDeniedError4Access denied error.

enum QMediaPlaylist::PlaybackMode

The QMediaPlaylist::PlaybackMode describes the order items in playlist are played.

ConstantValueDescription
QMediaPlaylist::CurrentItemOnce0The current item is played only once.
QMediaPlaylist::CurrentItemInLoop1The current item is played repeatedly in a loop.
QMediaPlaylist::Sequential2Playback starts from the current and moves through each successive item until the last is reached and then stops. The next item is a null item when the last one is currently playing.
QMediaPlaylist::Loop3Playback restarts at the first item after the last has finished playing.
QMediaPlaylist::Random4Play items in random order.

Member Function Documentation

QMediaPlaylist::QMediaPlaylist(QObject *parent = Q_NULLPTR)

Create a new playlist object with the given parent.

[virtual] QMediaPlaylist::~QMediaPlaylist()

Destroys the playlist.

bool QMediaPlaylist::addMedia(const QMediaContent &content)

Append the media content to the playlist.

Returns true if the operation is successful, otherwise returns false.

bool QMediaPlaylist::addMedia(const QList<QMediaContent> &items)

Append multiple media content items to the playlist.

Returns true if the operation is successful, otherwise returns false.

bool QMediaPlaylist::clear()

Remove all the items from the playlist.

Returns true if the operation is successful, otherwise return false.

int QMediaPlaylist::currentIndex() const

Returns position of the current media content in the playlist.

Note: Getter function for property currentIndex.

See also setCurrentIndex().

[signal] void QMediaPlaylist::currentIndexChanged(int position)

Signal emitted when playlist position changed to position.

Note: Notifier signal for property currentIndex.

QMediaContent QMediaPlaylist::currentMedia() const

Returns the current media content.

Note: Getter function for property currentMedia.

[signal] void QMediaPlaylist::currentMediaChanged(const QMediaContent &content)

Signal emitted when current media changes to content.

Note: Notifier signal for property currentMedia.

Error QMediaPlaylist::error() const

Returns the last error condition.

QString QMediaPlaylist::errorString() const

Returns the string describing the last error condition.

bool QMediaPlaylist::insertMedia(int pos, const QMediaContent &content)

Insert the media content to the playlist at position pos.

Returns true if the operation is successful, otherwise returns false.

bool QMediaPlaylist::insertMedia(int pos, const QList<QMediaContent> &items)

Insert multiple media content items to the playlist at position pos.

Returns true if the operation is successful, otherwise returns false.

bool QMediaPlaylist::isEmpty() const

Returns true if the playlist contains no items, otherwise returns false.

See also mediaCount().

bool QMediaPlaylist::isReadOnly() const

Returns true if the playlist can be modified, otherwise returns false.

See also mediaCount().

void QMediaPlaylist::load(const QNetworkRequest &request, const char *format = Q_NULLPTR)

Load playlist using network request. If format is specified, it is used, otherwise format is guessed from playlist name and data.

New items are appended to playlist.

QMediaPlaylist::loaded() signal is emitted if playlist was loaded successfully, otherwise the playlist emits loadFailed().

void QMediaPlaylist::load(const QUrl &location, const char *format = Q_NULLPTR)

Load playlist from location. If format is specified, it is used, otherwise format is guessed from location name and data.

New items are appended to playlist.

QMediaPlaylist::loaded() signal is emitted if playlist was loaded successfully, otherwise the playlist emits loadFailed().
