      Description

      When using the Qt example "videowidget", trying to open a video from UNC path causes error, and the video cannot be played.

      Steps to reproduce:

      • Start Qt Example program "videowidget"
      • Open file, navigate to network path (i.e. "\\server\movie.avi")
      • Press play

      Observed result:

      • Error is shown to user, video cannot play. Given error is "DirectShowPlayerService::doRender: Unresolved error code 80040266"

      Expected result:

      • Video plays

      I tested changing the QUrl::fromLocalFile to simple QUrl as suggested by some workarounds, but it did not fix the problem.
