Sorry for my bad English, I'm not a native speaker.

I'm searching for a free as possible lib that allows me to playback mp3
files and mp3 streams (such as shoutcast) under mono with c#. I found out
about gstreamer-sharp, but after compilation I'm not able to use it with

After a bit frustrating afternoon trying to get it working I have 2

1) Is there a way to integrate the gstreamer-sharp installation with
After compilation I got the following files:

* ls -al /usr/local/lib/mono/gac/gstreamer-sharp/
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 689152 2011-01-01 19:01 gstreamer-sharp.dll
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root    723 2011-01-01 19:01 gstreamer-sharp.dll.config
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 330633 2011-01-01 19:01 gstreamer-sharp.dll.mdb

* ls -al /usr/local/lib/mono/gstreamer-sharp-0.10/
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root   68 2011-01-01 19:01 gstreamer-sharp.dll ->

but I cant find out how to tell MonoDevelop to use these dlls.

2) Are there any other libs for my needs? I read some about ffmpg bindings,
irrklang and bass but I didnt have the chance to give them a try yet.

My environment is Linux Mint 9 (Ubuntu 10.04) with Mono JIT compiler version
2.4.4 (Debian 2.4.4~svn151842-1ubuntu4) and MonoDevelop Ide

I'm a beginner with c#, mono and MonoDevelop. 
Creating an simple mp3 software player is my learning project.

Thank you very much and a happy new year :)
