I wonder if anyone can help me, I am writing a game, I want to use an MP3 file in it, however everytime I go to play it, I get the error unrecongnised format.
After some searching I have found that I am missing mp3plugin.jar.
I have atttempted to download it from the oracle site but it keeps taking me to a page where the plugin does not exist.
Does anyone have a copy that they can send me? Or know of an alternative site where I can get it?
I have googled it and most links that promise the download often look to be dodgy or require money.
Any help you can provide would be most appreciated.
You know that mp3 is a proprietary format and using it for a game may make you liable for a payment? Maybe it is a small enough project it will be overlooked. OGG/VORBIS is a reputedly better encoding system, and open source. You might give it a look.
