If you don't want alot of fuss with implementing your own mp3 decoding algorithm, take my advice and use a prebuilt DLL - such as BASS. Download load it (http://www.un4seen.com/music/) and read the documentation that comes with it. If it isn't obvious to you what to do it then you might want to bother with more important things, such as reading a good book, before dealing with playing mp3s. Or you could take a look at freshmeat.net and download some source code and sort it out yourself. There is also a implementation from frauenhofer (something like that ) institue at wotsit.org - where there are also several documents on the topic.

I use FMOD, which is an excellent, and more importantly, free, library for playing all sorts of sound/music files. (mp3 wav s3m mod, etc...)

It is really quite easy to use, and it includes examples that don''t have all the bells and whistles that only serve to complicate the learning process...

Check out fmod.org

none of them are free if you plan on selling your game.

Is there a way to use the Windows Media player support to decode to a Direct Sound Buffer?

I''m pretty sure it could be done through DirectShow, but is it possible just using DirectSound routines?
