    Well, you want to look up audio APIs such as Direct Sound, FMOD and such.

    No. It's not as simple as that. C++ has no built-in functions for reading / playing MP3 files. Google FMOD and read on the website.

    You must distribute the file fmod.dll that comes with the library. It will enable users to run your application.
