View Full Version : QWebview not displaying jpg, gif, png images on another machines

6th May 2011, 14:20

Today I came across a very strange error with QWebView which I cannot resolve myself.

I included a QWebView widget in my application. When I set a URL or a piece of HTML code to display (with QWebView::setUrl() or QWebView::setHtml()), it works very well on my machine. It also works on all machines that have Qt installed, but not on those without it. I compiled a release build and included all necessary libraries as shared (QtWebKit4.dll, QtNetwork4.dll etc.), so I guess my error lies in that I forgot to include some libraries.

If anybody has already had such an error, I would be very grateful for help!

You probably forgot to deploy image plugins (there are plenty of threads discussing this issue and how to solve it, see "Similar Threads" below, for example http://www.qtcentre.org/threads/16154-Problem-with-displaying-jpeg-and-gif-images-in-QT4)

Thank you! That solved my problem!

it is strange, that developers do not mention anything about including additional image libraries when compiling an application that uses QWebView.
