Pressing the play button results in no sound output and the last few warnings (about gstreamer missing a plugin) get repeated.

the Python stack trace is actually benign : it's because there is no notification-daemon running (don't start searching there is no port for it in Macport). Notification popups will not be shown on track change etc.

The gstreamer messages are what troubles me. You could try to run

gst-launch playbin uri=file:///PATH_TO_AN_MP3_FILE.mp3

and see if any error message appears. If there is no error message and you hear your music, something is wrong with quodlibet. Otherwise something is wrong with quodlibet.

Thanks, that helped me narrow down the problem. gst-plugins-ugly needs to be installed in order to play mp3s. Not a problem with quodlibet after all. Maybe add an install note about the requirement?
