Audio in Qt5

I have a project in Qt5, where I need to play some audio files (most likely in mp3 format). I have tried with the following code:

Code: Select all

QMediaPlayer* mediaPlayer = new QMediaPlayer;
Unfortunately I just get the following message and no sound:

Code: Select all

defaultServiceProvider::requestService(): no service found for - "org.qt-project.qt.mediaplayer"
I have googled this issue, and as far as I can understand, the problem is that Gstreamer (more precisely gst-omx) is not properly installed and recognized by Qt. I have tried to install gst-omx following guidelines found here:
But without much luck - just keep getting that Gstreamer is not supported with running the configure script.
Can anyone tell me how I get support to Gstreamer in Qt - or is there another way around this issue of playing audio file in Qt on Raspberry Pi?

My impression was that it wasn't done yet on the Pi for QT5. Fortunately for my app sound wasn't strictly necessary.

PS - I ran into another problem where I would get an occasional "QXcbConnection: XCB error 165" at startup. I had to put the option "Xinerama" "true" in the serverlayout section of xorg.conf.
