hi everyone, i''d like to know this: i want to play mp3 files in my game and i am able to do that using directshow. But is it the best way? What about other freesoft (code) which is available? Does anyone have some experience in this stuff? thanks...

DirectShow may be quite optimized though, and of course seems to be free, at least free-enough that no-one will care.

someone will always blurb licensing and legal issues with the use of mp3s, but this tech is so easily concealed in your program that it makes no difference where you get it from, or how much you use it.

I find that mp3 algos are not exactly intuitive, so Id rather make the game using mp3s, rather than re-learn calculus and write my own mp3 codecs..
