I think an interleaved file format is the best way to start with. Loading mp3 data from disk and bitswapping while playing back the movie will probably give you all sorts of nasty sync problems.

On the other hand you will need to preload the mpeg buffer before starting it, so the sound data in the file needs to be offset in time from the video data anyway. And it will have to be offset differently depending on audio bitrate. And then we have VBR, too. Brrr... :-)
