all I know is, that if someone is not normal there, then the winemp3.acm 
  will have problems.

yes, I guess so too

well, I am just a user, not a developer of wine. I had problems with 
mp3s in a video like you had, and found a solution on the net, which I 
then used and improved. That's all. If you want to improve wine, talk 
with the developers.. probably best on the devlopers mailing list.

if you start winecfg, then there is a tab named libraries. There you 
will find a drop-down-box where you can select dlls, but where you can 
also write text. There you write winemp3.acm, and add the library (the 
button right besides the dropdown box). After that you can edit the 
setting for the library (mark winemp3.acm and press the button below the 
button for adding it) and select in the option list to 
deactivate/turn-off/disable (last option) it. Then you are done.
