I want to be able to play MP3 file rather then those ogg and such…
Is it possible?

MP3 is not supported in Godot. Until recently MP3 patents required licensing, which makes it very unfriendly for OSS projects. Some of the patents have expired, but it still remains a proprietary format, so it’s unlikely to be supported in Godot any time soon.

Converting an existing file from MP3 to OGG is very easy using a number of different tools. Audacity is a popular open-source option.

Keep in mind, MP3 is a lossy compression format, so if the MP3 encoding is of low quality, the conversion will likely result in an even poorer-sounding file. You’re best off starting with a high-quality lossless version of the audio.

MP3 support is available in Godot 3.3 and later.
