Description 2018-05-30 15:17:41 UTC
I use QT 5.9.1 on windows10 with an intel graphics card. Using one output sink is no problem.
Only adding multiple GstGLVideoItems doesn’t work. 
I add the qmlqlsink to my qml file as follows:
                id: idVideo0
                objectName: "videoItem0"
                x: 0
                y: 0
                width: parent.width / 2
                height: parent.height / 2
                Component.onCompleted: _AppMgr.vid0 = idVideo0
                id: idVideo1
                objectName: "videoItem1"
                x: parent.width / 2
                y: 0
                width: parent.width / 2
                height: parent.height / 2
                Component.onCompleted: _AppMgr.vid1 = idVideo1
In C++ backend I wait till the vid0 and vid1 properties are set and then I start building the pipline.
Vid0 works as expected…. If I use the same pipeline with vid1 I get:

Comment 1 Matthew Waters (ystreet00) 2018-08-28 05:11:49 UTC
This is effectively an extension of the wglShareLists() problem outlined by

With proper drivers advertising and correctly performing wglCreateContextAttribsARB() this doesn't happen.
