Hi All


I am trying to play video using MediaPlayer. My application plays sound witha black screen but no video plays.The SDK i am using is Here is my c++ code


Container *contentContainer = new Container();

    mForeignWindow.setPreferredSize(600, 600);

    QUrl url = QUrl("asset:///sample_mpeg4.mp4");
    qDebug() << "SETTING SOURCE URL TO" << mPlayer.setSourceUrl(url);
    mPlayer.setParent(contentContainer);//set the parent of media player
    mPlayer.setVideoOutput(VideoOutput:Smiley TonguerimaryDisplay);
    if(mPlayer.play() != MediaError::None)
