      Description

      The MediaPlayer QML type documentation provides one code example using VideoOutput as a UI component to render the video that is played.

      However, the VideoOutput QML component doesn't have the source property anymore, making that example incorrect.

      Incorrect example:

      Item {
          MediaPlayer {
              id: mediaplayer
              source: "groovy_video.mp4"
          }
      
          VideoOutput {
              anchors.fill: parent
              source: mediaplayer
          }
      
          MouseArea {
              id: playArea
              anchors.fill: parent
              onPressed: mediaplayer.play();
          }
      }
      

      Here is a suggestion of revised version:

      import QtQuick
      import QtMultimedia
      
      Window {
          width: 1024
          height: 768
          visible: true
      
          MediaPlayer {
              id: player
              source: "file:groovy_video.mp4"
              audioOutput: AudioOutput {}
              videoOutput: videoOutput
          }
      
          VideoOutput {
              id: videoOutput
              anchors.fill: parent
          }
      
          MouseArea {
              id: playArea
              anchors.fill: parent
              onPressed: player.play();
          }
      }
