system directories



I would like to save movies or images on device. I didn't find anything about retrieve system locations like QDesktopServices that seems not yet implemented.


If I save videos into


QDir::home().currentPath() + "/shared/videos"

are they available also for other applications ? I didn't find infos about sandbox in cascades, can anybody point me to some docs ?


thanks in advance
