Ah. The QR library is for *generating* QR codes, not for reading them.

FWIW I can control wither mplayer or SMPlayer from LC on linux *as long 
as they're in separate windows*. Or I can play videos in the entire 
stack frame. Just not within a player rect.

Can't speak for Firefox... maybe Andre will chime in on this. But CEF is 
spawned from the Chrome codebase, so that's the option. The "problem" as 
I understand it, is that you're supposed to embed your application 
within the framework, and we're embedding the framework inside the LC 
engine. Somehow it works on Windows.

Hey - *you're* the ubuntu expert here. Don't know these things.
AFAIK web apps are just browser launcher shortcuts.
