I discovered (with a suitable amount of dismay) that QAudioDecoder still doesn't work on Mac, and only a single person seems to have noticed this before (http://interest.qt-project.narkive.com/JTiX8LBR/qaudiodecoder-defaultserviceprovider-requestservice-no-service-found-for-org-qt-project-qt).

To make matters worse, Qt can be configured to use GStreamer on Mac. The configure step completes just fine, the GSt tool library is built, but not the plugins that do the actual work.

Here's a simple patch that removes the plugin bridle and adds couple of settings that somehow aren't done automatically by QMake:
