Is there any (cheaper) alternative to meridian's MP3 OCX at the earthshattering price of $249 - surely someone has written a freebie OCX for this, or does anyone know how to call a function for it, surely one would imagine that it would be as easy as calling a function in a dll file, winamp distributes with a few home made dlls, could one of these be the key???

I've done a frontend for winamp, it plays MP3s through it. Winamp is very easily manipulated using SendMessages. Check \Winamp\Frontend.txt for commands you can perform on it. You will have to check about the copyrights though with Nullsoft

I'm writing a programme that uses mp3 files, but the problem with using winamp is of course, what if the end user doens't have winamp on their computer? Also, one would imagine that to play a sound file it shouldn't be necessary to use another program, but to play it as a standalone. Can you offer any other suggestions, and I do appreciate your time in trying to help.
Cheers.
