    What's the best way to have one .mp3 or .mp4 playing constantly, looping when needed, the whole time the user is in the application? What if I have multiple tracks? I know how to do this in a Mac application, but it seems to be different for an iPhone app.
    Thanks, Nate

    OpenAL's SoundEngine has a specific method for it: SoundEngine_LoadBackgroundMusic(stuff);

    And it loops. You can unload and load whenever you want, so if you have multiple tracks, then you can use those as well.

    Thanks, but I don't know where to download his engine. I found his site, but no sound engine. Also, would it just be in the form of a class or framework?

    Thanks, NAte

    It's part of the CrashLanding sample app that you can download from the iPhone Dev Center. The app source code will show you how to use it.
