Anyone else know?? i'm looking for programmers that know what i mean here??

Does it have to be ActiveX cos theres a lot of DLL's out there that will do the same thing (and a lot more).

I know theres one that is really good and free but the name has slipped my mind.

Ok got it now: FMOD: http://www.fmod.org/

Its fast and has a hell of a lot more features than any ActiveX component would have (supports ogg, wma, EAX etc). And I've found it easy to work with to - got a basic windows mp3 player up and running in c++ in about 15 minutes.

Good Luck
