c++ universal mp3 dab player lib for linux and windows

PGT asked:

Open original thread

I'm thinking of writing a c++ based HTPC (home theatre) running linux.
This might be easy to do in python, but i also need more c++ experience
As for now i think of something that can play MP3 and DAB (digital audio broadcasts)
And can accept some typed command or by network recieved command.
Later it has to support an arduino board for input (com port communication) but thats for future use.

Basically as for now it will replace my audio hifi set.

Now i am wondering would it be possible to write it in c++ and use some general MP3 and DAB library so the code when finished would easily run on windows and linux ?
I wouldnt like to develop it twice, if its not possible then my code will be linux
Can someone point me to such a library ?

For playing mp3 and perhaps a small sample of how to use it, i'm not new to c++ but i am new to coding something inside linux.

(PS i'm thinking of opensource software here, my code will be like that too)
