Loading an ogg file the regular way with Mix_LoadMUS(), and trying to
play either with Mix_FadeInMusic() or Mix_PlayMusic() causes my program
to crash. It never return from Mix_FadeInMusic() or Mix_PlayMusic(). I
don't know what MikMod is, but I would assume based on the comments I
read in SDL_mixer.h that these functions would open and play any
supported file format. I only tried it the other way when all else
failed. Are you able to get ogg music files to play using either
Mix_FadeInMusic() or Mix_PlayMusic()?
