Trouble with a wave file

    I can get other wave files to work but not this one, it plays fine in the resource previewer and as a music resource, but not as an autoplay/load.

    The file is 44100Hz, 2822kbps, 32 bit, Stereo, while the ones that work properly are 44100Hz, 1411kbps, 16 bit, Stereo. So I figure its a format issue? If this is the case, I am also curious as to if anyone knows of a decent free bit of software that can convert this file to the proper format (Google wasn't real helpful - or I am just punch drunk).

    Thank you.

  • That file is obscenely large, over 200MB o_0

    That's probably the issue, trying to play such a huge file.

    Use Audacity to convert it to an mp3 or ogg with a somewhat reasonable size.

  • Odd, it shows on my machine as 2.6 Mb. If this is the case, I dont think that the file size is the issue.

  • Most sound cards only support 16 or 24 bit sound files - I think XAudio2 is clever enough to play 24 bit sounds on 16 bit hardware by converting the sounds automatically, but I dont think it does that for 32 bit sounds. Resampling it with an external tool should fix it.

  • Worked like a charm thank you, converting it to 16 bit did the trick. Also, thank you Dataflashabot for pointing me in the direction of Audacity.

    Oops, sorry... I must have misread b as KB or something (although it's still probably best to convert to ogg or something, unless you have a specific reason not to)

    No problemo!
