Playing mp3 files is no problem when using the classes in the Microsoft.DirectX.AudioVideoPlayback namespace. But with that you have to use the default device. But how to play mp3's (or wma's) on another device? I tried using the Microsoft.DirectX.DirectSound namespace ( classes like Microsoft.DirectX.DirectSound.Device or Microsoft.DirectX.DirectSound.SecondaryBuffer) and it was quite easy to access the other device(s) and play _wav_ files. But I did'nt get it work to load mp3's into a buffer so that it could be played. I gues it has to be decoded to load it into the buffer, but I could not find any sample code... or is there an easier way?
