Yes, me too :)
Finally I find the switch to change this ;)
First I thought it is hardcoded in OpenMotif...

When I look to the output of snd written to the shell from where I
started snd it looks like, that ogg123 is called, the file is
converted to something like "raw" and this fact calls mpg123 in
A "hooked hook" so to say.... ;)

I will try this!

...and this way (as it is currently implemented) everything remains
up to date and other formats can easily be added... ! :)

I did it and it works like a charm! :)
Is "load" the same as "load-from-path" with the difference, that
load needs a full path specification and load-from-path does not ?
