Streaming .mp3 support now that patent has expired.

"Streaming of 'mp3' on this platform is not supported"

I understand that this error is due to mp3 licensing issues, but it appears the patent has expired as of April this year (2017). Would be nice to see support added for this now.

    Yes Niaraeth, and the patent is expired. Licenses are no longer required. It's now public domain.

    I am currently working on an audio game where users can load in their own songs at runtime. However, most users do not have wav or ogg files, and mp3, flac and aac are formats that would be most appealing to users (I know this is an edge case but it is still an important one.)

    It is great this this is finally out of patent, so please (all of the votes I have) make this happen!
