Hi Chinmaya
I'm not a Qt Multimedia expert - maybe someone else on the list or on qt-interest would have a better idea.
Yes, GStreamer is the backend for Linux and it's possible to implement your own backends for QtMultimedia or Phonon.

Thanks for your feedback. I am trying get the example to work, I am not able to get it to work.
Could you please refer me to some documentation on this? I din't find http://doc.qt.nokia.com/4.7-snapshot/qtmultimedia-module.html helpful.

One more question, Does QtMultimedia, still use Gstreamer as backed on Linux?
Is there any architecture documentation on this?
And is it possible to implement my own backend for QtMultimedia or Phonon?

Thank you

HTML5 video tag in webkit trunk should work with QtMultimedia, which is part of 4.7.
Before trying the HTML5 video tag, I'd make sure that QtMultimedia is built and the tests/examples for it work. Sometimes that requires setting QT_PLUGIN_PATH to make sure the QtMultimedia backend is present.

I am trying get Qt+WebKit to HTML5 video tags, I use Webkit.org repository to build latest stuff.

Currently I have tried both Qt4.6 and Qt4.7, I have not got it to play a html5-video tag yet.

(Yes I have compiled with --video option)
