For audio, an alternative to SDL's audio support is Audiere ( It can play both streams and pre-loaded samples in WAV, MP3, Vorbis, MOD, and a few other formats. Under Windows, it uses DirectSound to mix sounds, so it can take advantage of Windows 2000/XP's kernel-mode mixer or hardware mixing. Under Unix, it uses its own low-latency mixer with decent sample rate conversion. It should work under FreeBSD, though I don't think it's been tested there lately. None of the game consoles are currently supported.

There's a Lua binding in the Subversion repository at, but it's not currently integrated with the GNU build system used on Unix, so you'll have to build it yourself.

I hope this helps.
