Getting mp3-support in KDE for Windows is major PITA at the moment, so this section needs defintly improvement to be end-user ready.
The first step would be get a hold of all codecs and check which are the best and fit best in our purpose.
After we found the best solution the next step would be to integrate this into the installer. The codecs could be installed automaticly or the user could be given choice and also educate him of legal conseqences.
