Last time I checked, ringtones were handled via gstreamer, which
supports many formats. On 2007.2, you needed to edit a text file to
change the ringtone format. I'm not sure why it didn't just autodetect
I'm not sure if 2008.8 still works that way or not, but gstreamer
probably makes more sense than mplayer, since it's a library and
extremely flexible. It is used for most of the audio playback on the FR.
Anyway, this is probably more of a GUI issue than anything else. My
guess is that they haven't addressed it because of all the underlying
framework changes that are taking place right now.
