Not really, why can't you construct a QString from a string ?

Python 2.6.5 (r265:79063, Apr 16 2010, 13:09:56)
[GCC 4.4.3] on linux2
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
>>> from PyQt4 import QtCore
>>> mystring = '~/videos/foo.mp4'
>>> path = QtCore.QString(mystring)
>>> path

If this is not the answer of your question, please show the part of your
