I am writing a game using Delphi 4, and I want to use MP3s as music in my game. I have two questions:

1. Do you know of any freeware MP3 Player component for Delphi that DOESN'T require the user to have WinAmp for any other third-party MP3 Player installed on their system?

2. Do you know of any web sites where I can get MP3s of rock music suitable for a fast-action/arcade-style game that I can use for free in my game?

Thanks for the component, but I also asked for a place where I can find some MP3s that I can put in my game. Keep in mind that they must be royalty-free, legal, and suitable for use in a shoot-em-up style game (like Raiden or Raptor).

www.xaudio.com for the compontent (uses a dll)
www.mp3.com for the mp3 =) , or.. write a letter
to the owner of the copyright of the song yha want
to use .. .. dunno |-)
btw mp3 for a game ?
mp3 asks a lot of the processor eh! .. I suggest that
you use a mid. or if you are making a larger game..
read audiotracks from a cd
