View Full Version : Seekable media formats

6th August 2008, 10:29
Is there a list of media formats / codecs that are seekable? (Phonon::MediaObject::isSeekable()) I assume seekability is codec related. I would like to freely go to any time position on video. Does the seek() function guarantee access accuracy in individual frame level or is it possible, it will seek a keyframe or something nearby?

Look at SeekSlider. It has such method

void setSingleStep ( int milliseconds )

I'm not worried about the user interface (ie. slider) ability provide me the time, but rather the underlying media seek. I'm going to synchronize video clips with other stuff so I need to be sure it really seeks to the given time. Currently I'm working on Java + JMF, which only provides seekability to some ancient media formats. I may change the platform to cpp + qt if better support for these requirements is available.
