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!

If you want to avoid the hassle of making an mp3 player (decoder) that can handle multiple instances, just use WinAmp. (www.winamp.com).  Also, I think that they give out the source/algorithm to the decoding of mp3's, but not the entire source to WinAmp.  (WinAmp is by FAR the best mp3 player/decoder.)
