MP3 Support?
« on: October 18, 2007, 05:09:49 pm »
Hello,

My application needs to be able to play MP3 files. If I'm going to be able to port it from SDL to SFML I'll need something like the SDL Mixer library.

I see something like 21 file formats supported, but not MP3. Is that due to copyright/ legal issues?

Regards,
Cakemeister

You might want to look at this site, before you mess around with MP3.

The best alternative, imho, is OGG.

Hehe it's vorbis, as ogg can also be theora and that would be a video format:)
And btw. support for ogg is far better then for mp3. mp3 is just more popular, as it's older.

EDIT: Don't convert files from mp3 to ogg, you may lose a lot of quality. If you have highquality or lossless samples compress them directly to ogg:)
