NAudio & Mp3 Licensing?

Jul 11, 2011 at 5:29 PM

Hi, I had a few questions regarding Naudio and it's legal aspects, and I would appreciate if you could clarify them for me.

1) Does Naudio contain an mp3 decoder? Or does it use/call one built into the operating system?

2) If I want to distribute my application (with NAudio), will I have to pay mp3 licensing fees (

Thanks for any help in advance!

1) No, it can use either ACM or DMO MP3 decoders provided with Windows

2) no license fees are required
