View Full Version : [ubuntu] cant play .wav files in ubuntu 10.04

March 6th, 2011, 07:25 PM
This has been a HUGELY longstanding issue for me. I have a copy of FL Studio 9 Fruity Edition running off of wine. Everything about it works just as it should, other than the fact that no wav file will play. This is not just for wine, it's for all of Ubuntu.

Again, I have ubuntu 10.04 running on an Acer Extensa 5230e laptop. Do i need specific codecs, or a program, or does wine not support wav files??? whats wrong?

EDIT: ok this is gay. ubuntu will play .wav files fine. It's just FL Studio running in wine that wont. do i need a windows codec pack for wine?

You can try this link https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RestrictedFormats for your most likely solution. I was having an issue playing WAV files in any program and was able to play them after following the steps on installing the restricted formats.

I think installing ubuntu-restricted-extras would do the trick.
