this comes from here I have a doubt: Is it a messy technique to encode a wav file with MP3 and play this wav with DirectSound? How would DirectSound read this file? Would DSound load the entire uncompresed data to memory to play it or will do file streaming? Should I do this, have you done it before? [edited by - xaxa on September 15, 2002 3:08:03 AM]

Use Fmod, it''s free unless you plan to sell your program.

FMOD supports mp3 and better yet, Ogg Vorbis. If you decide to use Oggs instead, you might as well jsut get the Ogg SDK.

www.vorbis.com

Ogg Vorbis is free to use, commercial or otherwise, it''s also patent free. Very nice.

some guy told me if I use DirectSound to play a wav encoded with mp3 compression, I can''t be sued because I''m using a common windows functionality. He told me I don''t need a licence to play mp3 encoded wav. The problem could come if I code a decoder myself. What do you think people?
