Hi, everybody,

I'm attempting to use phonon in a standalone app on Mac OS X.

At the moment, I am using py2app to bundle the application. When I try to play audio in the resulting app on a machine that doesn't have Qt installed, I receive the following error:

Phonon::FactoryPrivate::createBackend(void) phonon backend plugin could not be loaded

When I run the original python script locally (where I have PyQt and Qt w/ phonon installed), it performs exactly as expected. When I run the py2app-generated app locally, it plays audio as expected (the app does throw a threading error, but we'll save that one for another day).

When I run the same py2app-generated app on a different machine and then try to play an audio file, I get the above "phonon backend plugin" error.

My environment:
- python 2.6.1
- MySQLdb 1.2.2
- Qt 4.4.3
- sip 4.7.7
- PyQt 4.4.3
- py2app 0.3.6

All Macs involved have QuickTime 7.5.5
I create my app via python setup.py py2app --includes sip

Thank you for reading. Any advice about creating a standalone app that uses phonon would be deeply appreciated.
