simple play test of video not working

Hello all,

I just started evaluating the wdk and have problems in getting a simple video to run inside the simulator.

The documentation says, that for a simple test I simply have to start the simulator and then can enter

tv.mediaPlayer.load("URI");
tv.mediaPlayer.play();

to play a video for testing.

This does not work here, although I test it on the unchanged ubuntu virtual machine.

Gstreamer works flawlessly on this machine with the videos,
I tested it with own videos and with the ones used in the mediaplayer sample widget with no luck so far.

What could I be missing?

  • Can we see the code you're using?  The URI must point to your video and be a string (in quotes)
