Hi Otavio,

How do i go about resolving the issue any suggestions ?

Should I try to build meta-qt5 master branch which  says qt5.5 has been ported or is it possible to find the recipe that you mentioned for custom qtmultimedia5.5

Please advice!

Sriraman Ravi

There is more involved in what you describes:

 - gstreamer
 - qtmultimedia
 - qtbase

Qt 5.4 does not has support for GStreamer1.0 natively, there is a patch[1] for it.

1. https://github.com/meta-qt5/meta-qt5/blob/fido/recipes-qt/qt5/qtmultimedia/0001-Initial-porting-effort-to-GStreamer-1.0.patch

For our customers needing GStreamer we have made a custom QtMultimedia
5.5 to work against Qt 5.4 and this proved to be working fine for our customers; I don't remember exactly what issues we had with the patch but we eventually moved for a custom version for this set of customers.
