I am relatively new to c++ but have written a program that would benefit from a little background music. I need it to be mp3 format. I am using dev c++ on windows XP.

can anyone help?

I've never used Dev-C++, but it should have a Windows MediaPlayer component that you can drop on your application, and use it to play the MP3.

You can also google "msdn media control interface" for the APIs you can use to manipulate media devices on Windows.

Good luck.

Will this play continuously? if not do you know how i can do that?
