pygame.mixer.music.play mp3 skip

Issue #137 wontfix
Nils Öster created an issue

pygame.mixer.music.play doesn't work correctly for mp3, argument "start" (seconds), is not correctly handled. It seems it is only possible to skip a maximum of circa 30 seconds of the mp3-file. Setting start to a higher value makes no difference.

Python 2.7.2+ ubuntu 11.10

    Yeah, ogg is better to use. Sounds better, smaller, works better, and no licensing issues.

    Closing this, as it's an error with SDL_mixer really. If you want, you can log a bug report against SDL_mixer here: http://bugzilla.libsdl.org/

    cheers,
