Hello

I am looking for some free/GPL source
or libs to load a mp3 file into a DSSondbuffer or converting the file into
a wave file

I must admit that i am new to the mp3 format,
therefore i would also like to know where
i may find some specifications on the matter

thanks for reading

Well you can look into some Linux Mp3 players as they are all open source. But the problem with that is unless your game is "Freeware" you must pay a licencing fee to use the MP3 format in a commercial (sellable) product. I believe its about $3,000 for a licence. The only way around this little fee is to use Microsofts Media Player to play your Mp3's. Good Luck.

The media player also isnt too happy about playing MP3s anywhere except off the HD, which is a problem if you want real time, split second sounds without a lot of HD accessing...

There is source for mp3 stuff at this mp3 site: http://www.dailymp3.com

Maybe we should put a copy on GDNet :-)
