mp3 support in sequencer

Does anyone have a general idea if MP3 support will be added to the sequencer? I’ve been reading that the sequencer can be used as a non-liner editor, and most of the audio I work with is in mp3. Will mp3 every be supported? Is it currently supported and I just have to enable a setting?

I found the problem. MP3 works now, but only in the build of blender. The standard ubnuntu hardy build doesn’t work with any audio files for me, even with ffmpeg installed. This is kind of a useless post now since I figured out what’s wrong.

Sorry guys.
