I'm currently using ACM to decompress mp3's for playback. However, I would like to decode them myself since I want to allow user to play multiple mp3's concurrently and Fronhaufer's codec is junk - it only allows one instance to use it at a time, what a peice of work! Where can I get the most reliable and fastest library or source code for decoding mp3's?
Also, if I sell my program and it decode's mp3's, do I have to pay Hans and Frans?
I would like to leave this question open so please comment and I will give points to the best. Thanks for your help!
