    Audio support for Go language. (by qiniu)

    For a preview function in a desktop GUI app, I'm looking for an audio library that can play common audio file formats like MP3s, MP4, WAV, Ogg,... and has a permissive license like MIT or Apache (GPL or LGPL are not possible). Target platforms are Linux and Windows. Currently, I'm using which is pretty cool and has minimal dependencies but it is also limited; it can only read certain types of MP3s and no 24 bit WAVs.

    A little package that brings sound to any Go application. Suitable for playback and audio-processing. is handy and I've used it for a player. You could extend further to add support for decoding other file types it didn't do (it currentlu does MP3, WAV , FLAC, OGG)
