Generally, you should be good to go when you install something like this:

sudo yum install qt5-qtmultimedia-devel qt5-qtbase-devel .

For optimal usage install pulseaudio and pulseaudio-utils.

Also, be sure to install Qtcreator (qtcreator package) because you need to  build the project with it. 

See this post If you need instructions for building a QtCreator project.
