I have done everything I can to figure this problem out but unfortunately no luck. SDL mixer wont play and I dont understand it. My IDE (DEVC++) is set up perfectly. Irecieve no errors in when compiling the code. so here is the source hopefully you fellow game programmers can help.
#include "SDL.h"
#include "SDL_mixer.h"
#include <string>
#include "SDL_image.h"
#include "SDL_ttf.h"
#include "game_time.h"

//window settings and functions
const int SCREEN_WIDTH= 640;
const int SCREEN_HEIGHT= 480;
const int SCREEN_BPP= 32;    
bool init();
bool clean_up();


//music variables
Mix_Music *music = NULL;

//frame rate time, variables
//The frames per second 
const int FRAMES_PER_SECOND = 20;
Timer fps;
bool cap = true;
int frame = 0;

//font colors and text type variables and functions
TTF_Font *font;
SDL_Color textColor = { 255, 55, 20 };// color of text

//surfaces that will be used

I'm not going to dig through that right now, but some things you should try/consider:

- Instead of just returning on errors, use SDL_GetError for all relevant places where an SDL call is made. You may be able to track down your problem that way.

- Does your game just not play the music, or does it actually crash?

- Have you tried loading it as you would a normal sound file (Mix_LoadWAV / Mix_PlayChannel) instead of music?

- Are you sure the file is in the correct location? (hey, never know)

- Try initializing your sound device using AUDIO_S16 instead of MIX_DEFAULT_FORMAT, and see what happens (though the SDL_GetError should catch this for you).
