    Default QWebView won't play YouTube videos?

    I tried both Qt 5.3.1 mingw and PyQt 5.3.1 and couldn't get any videos to play in a QWebView browser? Any ideas why won't QWebView play Youtube html5 videos?

    All examples show that these lines should be sufficient:

    Qt Code:
    1. QWebSettings::globalSettings()->setAttribute(QWebSettings::PluginsEnabled, true);
    2. ui->webView->settings()->setAttribute(QWebSettings::PluginsEnabled, true);
    To copy to clipboard, switch view to plain text mode

    I don't think you need plugins for HTML5's video tag, that would be for using Flash.

    Have you tried with a local video?
