winsound module -> does it support mp3?
I tried using the winsound module the other night to play a mp3, but all I heard was an error beep. I converted the file to wav, and it worked. Does anyone know if winsound or any other Python/wxPython module supports playing mp3's? If not, Python is really behind the times.
Also, does the SND_ALIAS argument work with Windows XP? I tried using it too, but I got the same error beep no matter what name I tried.

I imagine that all sound playing libraries expect their input in a specific format. They are, after all, sound playing libraries, and not audio codecs.
Google for python mp3 libs. I don't know of any personally, but I'd be surprised if they didn't exist. I prefer oggs which have excellent python support (and sound better at smaller file sizes)

I did do some searching the other day, but came up empty. Everything I found was either a full-blown program or a module for id3 tags. I was hoping someone else had come across a module or developed one themselves.
