View Full Version : [kubuntu] Unable to play some WAV files

January 26th, 2010, 05:29 AM
Hi Everyone,

I just installed Fruity Loops 7 Studio (wine) on my laptop and noticed that I can play pre-made songs but not getting sound when I trying to create a new one. After looking into it I noticed that I can open and use some samples but not all of them.. I then noticed when browsing to the sample directories, I'm able to open only some WAV files. the other give me a message: Could not decode stream. I forward one of this file to a friend that also using KDE and he was able to open it with no problem..

Does anyone have an idea of why I can only execute certain WAV file while the other fail?

any help will be appreciated,

Hi, it may be a quirk in the sampling process, try importing one of the duds in audacity and rezound, and export it as a .wav again, and make
sure there are no special characters in the filename. (when running a linux command in wine, a space must be filled with a * for example

wine /home/user/.wine/drive_c/Program*Files/reaper/reaper.exe

If reconverting/resaving are successful, you could probably batch convert a folder of duds using ffmpeg and a wildcard. Google always has ffmpeg command strings for common procedures.
