I think one of the reason one might have to be able to play mp3´s or ogg´s
from inside a pd-patch can be that you´re working with some interactivity,
thematic project for instance where one is sniffing the web for sounds.

I regard mp3´s as usual as for instance jpg´s are on the web, speaking of
some image analogy of compressed formats. I don´t like the licencing of mp3
though and would prefer ogg to be the main standard.

Sometimes there aren´t time enough to do conversions on the fly to
uncompressed formats before importing files onto pd.

I can with other words imaging a number of situations which could call for
a a playability of mp3 and oggs.

Soundwise we all know wave and aiff sounds better, but I am a bit surprised
this seems to be a so complicated and sensitive issue about having pd play
a compressed sound file with some ease. Maybe this has been discussed over
the years over and over,so forgive me if this already stated somewhere
about these things.
