DirectShow is the way to do it.
It is really quite simple, if you have problems with it, I'll help you out.

Winamp

Personally if you can, i''d encourage the switch the OGG Vorbis.
If you can''t, then look into Direct Show as mentioned above.

Other than the DirectX options, I''ve found fmod a very easy to use and effective sound library. It easily handles mp3, ogg, and most others. Definitely worth looking into if you want an alternative to the DirectX options.

use FMOD, the best! Easy to learn the library too! Best if your concerned about performance & cpu utilization.
