Embed mp3 file and play in background VB.net

How do I embed a mp3 file? Because resource doesn't support mp3 files yet. So I'm clueless how to do it, I tried searching here before posting but I couldn't find similar one.

You could only 'embed' it as a link.  MP3's require a player on the client's computer.

Find a free tool and convert your .MP3 to .WAV, then use My.Computer.Audio.Play() with your embedded .WAV:

I just thought there's a way to embed mp3 file because my audio size is around 30mb and then after converting it to wav it will turn around 150mb.

So is there a way to play mp3 file direct to internet? I have the direct mp3 file at dropbox.

If you import a reference to the PresentationCore assembly, you can use the System.Windows.Media.MediaPlayer class to play an mp3 using its URI as input.
