DirectShow and DirectSound, do they taste good together?

Howdy, I have read about people using DirectShow to play MP3s. I would prefer to use 3MB MP3s over 50 MB wave files. But the way I understand it, I will still need DirectSound to play my in game sound effects and such. My question is, if I use DirectShow to play a background MP3, does it lock any system resource that will prevent DirectSound from playing .wav sound effects in a game? Thanks in advance!

I''ve never had any problem with using Direct Sound, Direct Music, and Direct Show at the same time. I play MP3s using DirectShow and my wavs, segments, etc. with Direct Music/Direct Sound. No real hit in performance or quality.
