  • phonon4qt5 is a feature and API equivalent library built against Qt 5 rather than Qt 4. Phonon4Qt5 is built from the same source; requires the cmake option PHONON_BUILD_PHONON4QT5 and a separate build directory from Qt 4.
    • phonon4qt5 supports a backend preference system independent of platform plugins and completely implemented using Qt technology.
    • phonon4qt5 integrates with Qt 5's QMake and can be used by setting QT += phonon4qt5 in your project file (please note that this may require building phonon4qt5 with -DPHONON_INSTALL_QT_EXTENSIONS_INTO_SYSTEM_QT=ON so that QMake finds the necessary files).
    • For further information please have a look at the Phonon4Qt5 documentation.
  • MediaSource(QString) is now deprecated, MediaSource(QUrl) should be used instead.
  • New build option PHONON_ASSERT_STATES to debug incoherent or incorrect state changes from the backend.
  • Documentation cleanup.
  • Normalized internal QObject connections.
  • Experimental support for building libphonon using QMake; limited control over feature set and installation path.
  • By default both official Phonon backends try to find a matching subtitle file for videos.
  • Phonon's CMake build now uses CMake's own GNUInstallDirs which on most systems should correctly figure out where to put library files (in particular with regards to multi-architecture support on Linux). Should you wish to manually set the library installation path, please use CMAKE_INSTALL_LIBDIR rather than LIB_INSTALL_DIR from now on.

Bug Fixes

  • AudioOutput::setVolume can now be called before entering Phonon::Playing state regardless of whether PulseAudio is in use or not [#321172].
  • Consecutive streams no longer override each other's PulseAudio stream mapping [#321288].
