Detailed Description

A media resource is composed of a URL containing the location of the resource and a set of properties that describe the format of the resource. The properties provide a means to assess a resource without first attempting to load it, and in situations where media be represented by multiple alternative representations provide a means to select the appropriate resource.

Media made available by a remote services can often be available in multiple encodings or quality levels, this allows a client to select an appropriate resource based on considerations such as codecs supported, network bandwidth, and display constraints. QMediaResource includes information such as the MIME type, audio and video codecs, audio and video bit rates, and resolution so these constraints and others can be evaluated.

The only mandatory property of a QMediaResource is the url().

QMediaResource::QMediaResource(const QMediaResource &other)

Constructs a copy of a media resource other.

QMediaResource::QMediaResource(const QNetworkRequest &request, const QString &mimeType = QString())

QMediaResource::QMediaResource(const QUrl &url, const QString &mimeType = QString())

Constructs a media resource with the given mimeType from a url.

QMediaResource::QMediaResource()

Constructs a null media resource.

QMediaResource &QMediaResource::operator=(const QMediaResource &other)

Assigns the value of other to a media resource.

QMediaResource::~QMediaResource()

Destroys a media resource.

int QMediaResource::audioBitRate() const

Returns the bit rate in bits per second of a media resource's audio stream.

This may be zero if the bit rate is unknown, or the resource contains no audio stream.

See also setAudioBitRate().

QString QMediaResource::audioCodec() const

Returns the audio codec of a media resource.

This may be null if the media resource does not contain an audio stream, or the codec is unknown.

This may be null if the MIME type is unknown.

QNetworkRequest QMediaResource::request() const

Returns the network request associated with this media resource.

QSize QMediaResource::resolution() const

Returns the resolution in pixels of a media resource.

This may be null is the resolution is unknown, or the resource contains no pixel data (i.e. the resource is an audio stream.

See also setResolution().
