    And continues through the DirectX jungle, or DirectShow specifically.

    You could use the FMOD (www.fmod.org) sound library - it can play just about any sound format in existance

    Bored? Try my game SpaceWars , made in Allegro and VC++
    or see my new game Redoubt , made in OpenGL and VC++

    winamp uses some of its own codecs. are you prepared to design, test, and implement an mp3 codec?

    in any case, look at the source code to xmms. it's a clone of winamp.
