if the symptom is, that there is sound for a very short time (0.5s 
maybe), then it is probably because of the wine mp3 implementaion that 
it won't work... I think it has problems if there are unexpected 
sampling rates (that's speculation). Use winecfg to disable winemp3.acm 
(like with a dll, there is also a disabling/deactivation option). You 
have to type in the name completely and wine will warn you about doing 
something with this.. but you still should. After this the Frauenhofer 
codec you installed should be used instead.
