    Is there any potential bugs with this? Does the user have to have this com registered on his computer?

    The user would have to have Windows Media Player installed.

    just for being interesting and all that,.. bit off topic but on the mp3 topic. you can use "lame" (lame is opensource and is licenced as lgnu)  to encode wave to mp3

    nice Yes?
