My working theory now, after a lot of spleunking, is that MacPort's
Qt is being built with a newer library version (likely libpng) which
is causing image format detection to fail.
To test that, I'd like to temporarily bypass detection. I see that
we can optionally tell QImage::fromData which image format to expect.
If I force it to be jpeg and images start displaying, that will
confirm my theory. From the Qt docs , that seems possible but I
don't know exactly what to feed it. In
mythtv/libs/libmythtv/AirPlay/mythairplayserver.cpp, line 837 is:
QImage image = QImage::fromData(req->GetBody());
do I replace it with
QImage image = QImage::fromData(req->GetBody(), req->GetBody().size(), "JPEG");
