I'm trying to play a .wav file using audacious and all the other soundtrack players available for ubuntu. However, these files do not play and they are all .wav files. Can ubuntu play .wav files or do these files need to be changed into .mp3 files?

Thanks

You need to install the win32 codecs.

Open a terminal and enter:
sudo apt-get install ubuntu-restricted-extras
Answer the prompts and you're good to go.
