Check here for a MAD driver for SDL_sound (noting that MAD is GPL, so it
can only be used with GPL-compatible programs):


Note that:

1. it'll take a little work to get this to run under stock SDL_sound
(it uses slightly changed entry points),

2. it makes no attempt to work on streams (but probably could with some

3. it's not very well-tested; the program I'm using it with will be
going into testing soon.

A lot of the more complicated seeking logic could probably be ripped
out; the app I wrote it for needs separate fast and accurate seeks, but
these aren't supported in stock SDL_sound.
