sound card Q: mp3 chips.

some sound cards have built in chips that play mp3s, with almost no using of your processor. does Linux support this feature on any of these cards?

i haven't heard of any linux drivers that support it yet, but i wouldn't be surprised if it's been added. the cards themselves are pretty new.. if you're interested in getting one, just do a little research on whatever card it is you're looking at. it would also help if you checked out - you should be able to find links there that would help you find if there's any support for that feature. and, failing that, you might want to write to one of the driver developers for the kernel. it's usually best not to bother them with most stuff, but implementing mp3 support would probably be something they would be open to hearing about.
