Thanks - no - I did not try to just rename the file from .mp3 to .wav That would not make sense. they are completely different file formats. I think that someone said that they converted their mp3 file to wav, then played it using the OpenAL libraries which in my case works as well.
For my test on the simulator - I found a web site that has wav and mp3 files on it. Clicking on wav opens the medial player and plays the audio. clicking on the mp3 file open the media player and then I get the rror I reported.
If you need a screenshot I can post it as well.

Yes, that makes sense.
I will try to confirm again if MP3 is supported on the simulators. If you would like to make a feature request in the developer issue tracker, feel free to do so (for example: to support more codecs in the simulator).
The more 3rd party developers we can have asking for certain features, the higher the chances that it would be pushed to the development teams.
