There are plenty of compressed formats so it implies a lot of different libraries,
and fortunately almost all is handled by gmerlin and then [readanysf~] external,
at the same time this external couldn't seek lossless formats like wav or flac...

I remember once a discussion about this topic where I proposed a solution using command lines
for the converting process, this is rather fast following the computer it's working on.
