Solved - MC32 doesn't play WAV or MKA files
« on: June 10, 2024, 12:34:07 pm »

Have been using MC22 and some later ones for a number of years, great, but...having upgraded to MC32, I'm getting a hard error on some file types.


WAV is audio multi-channel
MKA is derived audio file from MKV file, which is also multi-channel.
Both used to worlk fine AOK, brilliantly.
FLAC files still working, so audio path is OK.

"Something went wrong with playback....
Details: Failed to play xxx.wav   (or xxx.mka)
The file does not contain any audio"

Both of them certainly used to work on MC22 (recently upgraded to 31 and 32).
I started converting MKA to FLAC, until I realised MCxx could play MKA directly, so I stopped all that extra malarkey.

Bitstreaming is still switched off. (Thanks to Hendrick).

I noted that it used to try to load decoders from online when opening some files before playing them, it no longer does that.
But that could, of course, be a red herring,..
I see no benefit from MC32 in my application, so I'm tempted to just downgrade again.

Any other suggestions?
Thanks in advance.

What are you playing to and how is it connected?  Those should work.

Hi JimH

Thanks, I just worked it out.
It's not allowed internet access, which has been fine for ages.

However, v32 is a new version isn't it? So for some reason it can't play these file types natively & needed some extra modules to play these files.
Not very intuitive.
Just something to remember for next time it has an update...

Ha, all working now.
It's worth asking the question to get your own mind working...
