How possible is it to get MythMusic to play WMA files? I know that there
is a Linux Player that will play Windows Media (mplayer? I forget) but
it is possible to integrate it into MythMusic, or would I need a
separate component like MythVideo?

I think WMAs are the smallest, best sounding compressed audio there is,
and while I have no problem switching to OGG now (much bigger, but great
sound), I don't have the time to convert 3000WMA files into OGG and
probably wouldn't be impressed with the results anyway.

I know nothing of how to do this, but would be happy to learn and
contribute if it is possible.
