Sound files with MixMonitor not playable with Media Player

Hello,

the wav sound files that are created by using MixMonitor()-command are
not playable with Windows Media Player.

I can play them with vlc-player and on my Fedora with Totem.

This is one of the files :

/var/ftp/104/2011-11-30_11:54:39_89000404.wav: RIFF (little-endian)
data, WAVE audio, Microsoft PCM, 16 bit, mono 8000 Hz

What would be missing on the system (Centos 5.7) that makes wav-files
difficult for Windows Media Player ?

  • Since the other data seems kosher, have you tried just renaming the file
    without the -, _ and : ?

  • Hello,

    it worked perfectly before… I just did a clean install of my Asterisk
    server and changed nothing but Centos 5.6 to CentOS 5.7

    Therefore I ask if it should be something that I’m missing on my system ?

  • Like I said : I can play the sound file with Totem on Linux or
    VLC-player on Windows. So it’s not that the wav-file has no sound…
