Video background is working at here, with the SDDM:

To make the helping a bit easier, please tell:

Your distribution,
Qt version,
SDDM theme,
error messages when testing the SDDM greeter/lock screen,
are the Gstreamer plugins installed ?

SDDM: https://github.com/sddm/sddm/wiki/Theming
Testing
You can test your themes using sddm-greeter. Note that in this mode, actions like shutdown, suspend or login will have no effect.

sddm-greeter --theme /path/to/you/theme

Your distribution

Kubuntu 18.04
Qt version

5.9.3
SDDM theme

self created from breeze by editing metadata.desktop and Main.qml
error messages when testing the SDDM greeter/lock screen, are the Gstreamer plugins installed ?

I'm trying to open a video file but when then checking by:
Code: Select all
$ sddm-greeter --test --theme /usr/share/sddm/themes/breeze-video

it shows white sddm background. So a video file is just not applied for some reason:
Code: Select all
$ sddm-greeter --test --theme /usr/share/sddm/themes/breeze-video/

Does your video player work with the qmlscene ?

Simple test player: https://pastebin.com/PtZi4gA7

Could you share the sddm Main.qml ?

1)
What i mean: If you test your player part only - Does it play the video ?
Earlier - Qml mediaplayer stopped to play some formats: viewtopic.php?f=289&t=131783&start=45#p382976

2)
I tested your Main.qml:

I Inserted it to the Breeze theme and picked a video file with the kcm_sddm module.
Konsole:
Code: Select all
kcmshell5 kcm_sddm

Everything is working fine. Video is playing.


=>

a) Is the Qml mediaplayer playing all formats in your system ?
b) When you are using the kcm_sddm module:
Is the video file information marked right in the /usr/share/sddm/themes/breeze-video/theme.conf.user ?

At here - theme.conf.user:
Code: Select all
[General]
background=4K UHD 25fps FREE Video Background   HUD Sci Fi Futuristic Planet Earth.mp4
type=image


Is the video file copied to the /usr/share/sddm/themes/breeze-video/ ?

I don't know. How can I check it?

No, it doesn't:
Code: Select all
/usr/share/sddm/themes/breeze-video$ cat theme.conf.user

Make a simple player: https://pastebin.com/PtZi4gA7
and execute it with the qmlscene.

No, it doesn't:

/usr/share/sddm/themes/breeze-video$ cat theme.conf.user
[General]

This seems to be a problem. Try to rename the video file and try again. Sometimes the Videos from the net have extra characters that are messing the kcm_sddm. Another way is to use kate/kwrite to fix the theme.conf.user.

The kcm_sddm output (konsole) should be something like:
Ovr: "/usr/share/sddm/themes/breeze-video/theme.conf.user"
idx: 2
Debug message from helper: Removed previous background "/usr/share/sddm/themes/breeze-video/Joan Jett - Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap.webm"

Seems I found what was the cause of problem. It is because of Cyrillic folders names in which the video is. I just moved one file into /home/$username and it started to playing. So, as I understanding kcm_sddm module doesn't support Cyrillic (?) Is this a some kind of bug?

I would call it a bug and report it to the KDE bug tracker: https://bugs.kde.org
Other kcm_sddm bugs: https://bugs.kde.org/buglist.cgi?bug_st ... emsettings

A wish/revision request - Make it possible to pass different kind of backgrounds as such: https://phabricator.kde.org/D8833

Also, could you explain, after I successfully chose a video file should the background change also in kcm_sddm as a preview of chosen video? In my case nothing is changes.
Thanks.

Do you mean 1 or 2:

Full image: https://imgur.com/Mr6JmiB

1) is set in the metadata.desktop

2) The kcm_sddm only supports image file background previews.


With a trickery you could make the preview/screenshot image (1) to follow your theme.

The trickery: http://doc.qt.io/qt-5/qml-qtquick-item. ... age-method
(working with the X, not sure if this will work with the wayland)

You could add to the metadata.desktop:
Code: Select all
Screenshot=previewtest/preview.png


and add to the end of the Main.qml:
Code: Select all
    Timer {
        interval: 1000; running: true
        onTriggered: {
            root.grabToImage(function(image) {
                image.saveToFile("/usr/share/sddm/themes/breeze-video/previewtest/preview.png");
            });
        }
    }


Image

Edit the "/usr/share/sddm/themes/breeze-video/previewtest/" rights so that the sddm greeter has right to write the preview.png.

After this the execution of the greeter will save a new preview.png.
