I'm sorry if this has been asked before, but I didn't find any mailing
list archives on the net to try and at least search for the answer myself.

I'm using SDL_sound in a ogg/mp3 player application.  It runs the ogg
files fine no matter what.  However, I have a problem with mp3 playback.

If I enable SMPEG, I get no sound.  Nada.  It's filling the buffer with
data, because I have my counter working from the size of the data in the
buffer, and it's full everytime.  If I disable SMPEG, everytime I play a
file with id3v2 tags, I get garbage and it just moves on to the next song.

Is this a known problem, or am I doing something wrong?  I would rather
not have to force the users of my app to kill all of their id3v2 tags (me
included), so hopefully someone can help me out.
