digiKam 5.4.0 bundles will use QtAV framework instead Qt5Multimedia to thumb
and play video/audio. The Slideshow tool will also support video as well.

QtAV use ffmpeg codecs. It's multi-platform and will always available in
OSX, Windows and Linux bundles that digiKam team provide.

For Linux packagers, you will need to turn on video support at compilation time
and solve QtAV dependencies...

Bundles have been recompiled are posted to GDrive for testing :
