    Is there a way to add external subtitles to a video? Is this supported by Felgo?

    Hi Barazi,

    you can overlay the QML video output with custom QML components to display your subtitles. What format are the subtitles provided as?

    Hi Alex,

    I will use srt format. Is there a way to import ready made javascript library to parse srt files or other subtitle format?

    Could you please explain how to access the current duration/time of QML video output? I have tried to use runPlayerScript(“getDuration”) as explained in but got an error

    Hi Barazi,
    If you are using the Video QML Type you can access the duration of the media with the duration property. The position property holds the current playback position in milliseconds.

    Hi Thomas,

    Thank you for your support. Is it possible to do the same for Youtube videos? (I am still having the bug explained in my question )

    Hi Alaa,

    the youtube player uses a WebView, which cannot be overlayed with QML items. This is currently a limitation by Qt. We’d recommend using the QtMultimedia module to display your videos, in order to overlay it with custom QML items.
