Detailed Description

The QMediaContent class is used to prepare a media resource for playing in Qtopia.

A QMediaContent is constructed with a URL, that may refer to a local or remote resource, or a QContent that refers to a local media resource.

If the QMediaContent is constructed with a valid piece of media a signal will be emitted with for each of the controls available to manipulate that media.

During the life-time of a piece of media, the controls available may change, due to different formats being available in the content, each time a control is usable or unusable a controlAvailable or controlUnavailable signal will be emitted.

If there is an error preparing the media resource, the mediaError signal will be emitted, with a QString detailing the error information.

    Example:
    {
        QContent        beep = findBeepSound();

        m_mediaContent = new QMediaContent(beep);

        connect(mediaContent, SIGNAL(controlAvailable(QString)),
                this, SLOT(mediaControlAvailable(QString)));
    }

    void mediaControlAvailable(QString const& id)
    {
        if (id == QMediaControl::name())
        {
            // The basic media control is available, all media content
            // will have this control available.
            m_mediaControl = new QMediaControl(m_mediaContent);

            // Now do something play/get length
            m_mediaControl->start();
        }
    }
