.wav file playback?
« on: January 23, 2008, 12:18:38 PM »
just wondering if .wav files will be supported, i got a big wav sample collection and a preview option for these files would be great.

and in the mean time is there a way that i can make rawr player work for .wav files?

thx

I think it is possible but i am unsure. You will need to lie to the preview box code to do it the easy way. Add '= file.wav' to the file.mp3 section header and see what happens. The player was never built for it though.

Nope, thanks.

We also have the WMV / WMA / WAV support ready, but we never released it cause it causes to much problems on pc's that dont have the right version of windows media player installed and dont use Internet Explorer. On my pc, it crashes constantly. On others, it works perfectly.

But we are not going to release unstable features that might crash a pc's browser.

Not as far as i know.. The previews are made with HTML + JavaScript, the RAWR-Player is a flash object. So as long as the operating system supports those 3 things, it should be able to function properly :)

(basically all the os'es out there)

so the crashing you mentioned earlier should not be due to the playback of these files, is there a chance i could get my hands on the thing you scripted so far?

cause that wav playback would be a really great help

Its to do with the player not the playback. When we load the player it just crashes the browser. We have tested this thoroughly.

I suppose your wave samples are very huge (with good quality - bits and high samplerate). As you are looking for 'preview', why not convert them (analogous to thumbnails with images) to mp3(or better ogg, if supported) with 'low' quality (16bit, <=44,1khz)  for prehearing ?

No. We have lost the code a long time ago.

See post above, edit your mime types and live will support it.... or vlc will kcik in

.wav mime type:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/WAV

(you will most likely have to add all of them ...)
audio/vnd.wave, audio/wav, audio/wave, audio/x-wav
