Hello,

I have a voice recorder and it gives me the audio files in ZVR format. Is there any way I can convert that format to WAV or MP3?

Thanks.

I don't know if there's any native linux application for this. But the VoiceTracer program by Philips works well under Wine:

it can be downloaded here:

Can you make a small zvr sample available?

I thought it was worth a try, but I was unable to get FFmpeg, MPlayer, or mediainfo to even recognize this format.

You can try this prog under wine (download from the mirror site
http://www.free-codecs.com/ZVR_Converter_download.htm

It works on some zvr files, actually did on your sample, 50 secs of Beethoven's fifth I believe.

The resulting .wav had an odd 'displayed' play time in amarok (27 hrs.), running thru sox fixed the header


doug@doug-desktop:~$ sox IC_A0001.wav testz.wav


If you try and it won't open in wine then pm me and I'll upload a custom system32 that you can merge into the default one (has some useful dll's
