Hi, I installed KDE neon 5.15.1. Previously I have Kubuntu 18.04.
On Kubuntu Video Wallpaper plugin works very well.
In KDE neon I obtain only a black screen.
I installed all gstreamer plugins.
VLC dilsplay the videos with no problems.
The videos I tested are mp4.
I thank very much for all your help!

To get possible error messages
Earlier - A screen capture with the missing plugins: viewtopic.php?f=67&t=151301#p395486

- If the preview screen is black
- if the video duration is negative
- You get the - Error: "Your GStreamer installation is missing a plug-in."
This is not VLC
The Video wallpaper is using Qt 5 Multimedia QML module and GStreamer multimedia framework.
To test if the GStreamer can play the media: https://gstreamer.freedesktop.org/docum ... aunch.html
An example with the gst-launch-1.0
...and there is an error message:
=> GStreamer can't play this media file.
