Detailed Description

``backported``from 5.6

The Playlist type provides a way to play a list of media with the MediaPlayer, Audio and Video types. It can be used as a data source for view elements (such as ListView) and other elements that interact with model data (such as Repeater). When used as a data model, each playlist item’s source URL can be accessed using the source role.

import QtQuick 2.0
import QtMultimedia 5.4
Item {
    width: 400;
    height: 300;
    Audio {
        id: player;
        playlist: Playlist {
            id: playlist
            PlaylistItem { source: "song1.ogg"; }
            PlaylistItem { source: "song2.ogg"; }
            PlaylistItem { source: "song3.ogg"; }
        }
    }
    ListView {
        model: playlist;
        delegate: Text {
            font.pixelSize: 16;
            text: source;
        }
    }
    MouseArea {
        anchors.fill: parent;
        onPressed: {
            if (player.playbackState != Audio.PlayingState) {
                player.play();
            } else {
                player.pause();
            }
        }
    }
}
