mpg123 is awful.  there are exit(-1)s in the middle of the library.

xmms has a fork of mpg123 that is intimately tied to xmms.  also
probably not workable.

i believe teh current 'favorite' librarized mpeg decoder is libmad.
supposedly it's clean and works well.

if you're going to use mpg123, i'd at least use lame. :)
