I also have problems playing MIDI files:
Repetitions don't work which sounds extremely bad with
alternatives (the second one is played directly after the first one).

Have a look at the section called "Repeats and MIDI" in the manual. The version for Lily 2.4.2 is online at:

Ok, I did not read that section as it's not mentioned in "6 Sound".
Anyway it's not what I expected at all and I'd suggest making \unfoldrepeats the standard behavior for MIDI interpretation.
That would be more convenient than coding the music block twice
(with twice as much possibilities to make errors etc.)
Of course you don't enter the full music twice, just use identifiers,

Regarding your request that unfoldrepeats is the default behaviour, you
should bear in mind that the support for MIDI output from LilyPond has
mainly been intended for proof "reading" scores while you enter the
music. The main hackers of LilyPond have never had the ambition to
be able to produce hight quality MIDI output.
