Hello !

> There's one MP3 track that when trying to load it with Mix_LoadMUS_RW(), SDL_mixer thinks it's a MOD file and fails with "Module format not recognized". Is there anything I can do about it? When loading it, I know it's going to be MP3 data, but I can't find any way to tell that to SDL_mixer.
> Touching the MP3 data itself is not an option, since the application is a game engine (a bit like SCUMMVM) that runs pre-existing games made by people I never heard about.
> I'm out of ideas :-/

Would it be possible to publish a short MP3 that shows the problem
and is 5-10 seconds long ? It would allow people to do experiments with it.
