Wondering why I've been so quiet on , my app to fly drones? Because Android is a nightmare! I've been slaving away at making the Android and desktop builds be at parity, and by far the hardest part was playing back the RTP (no RTSP) video feed. The fourth video stack I've evaluated ( + qmlglsink) was finally the charm, not that it was all that easy to get going either. Proof shot attached! Thanks to the awesome @AleixPol for lots of help with the KDE Android SDK.

@EikeHein @AleixPol what were the other 3 video stacks? Was MLT one of them?

@frd @AleixPol Qt Multimedia, Android's MediaPlayer (rendering to a SurfaceTexture piped into the Qt Quick screne) and libvlc+VLC-Qt. Off-hand I can't find much about MLT on Android, this sounds like it's undiscovered country: github.com/mltframework/mlt/is
