Default Mp3PRO&DivX Movies

Have u ever used Mp3PRO?

Well, if it's the 1st time u see this name i can summarize the peculiarities of that codec in a few words:
1) Half size of Mp3 (!!!)
2) Perfect Quality
3) Compatible with Mp3 (....relatively)

I'm already using this codec for my CDs and i would like to use it for my DivX movies, but I DUNNO HOW!
There are only a few programs to convert a wav-CD with this codec, the best is MusicMatchJukebox, but u can also use THOMSONmp3PROAudioPlayer, but the problem is that if u wanna READ a Mp3PRO file, u must find a plugin compatible with your player (for Winamp it already exists and works great)
otherwise a mp3PRO file at 44100Hz is read as it's a mp3 at 22050Hz (!!!)

So if u convert the audio track of a movie to mp3PRO, when u read read the movie with ThePlaya or WindowsMediaPlayer the audio quality is worse!
if u find a plugin for those programs, or another way to make it compatible (with no quality loss), let me know, please!

This old thread from 3DSoundsurge might interest you and others.

I doubt there is (and ever will be) a Directshow filter for decoding MP3pro tracks.
