View Full Version : help with native WMA

2005-02-26, 23:55
Originally, all the files I play were referenced through Windows shortcuts.
To make sure this wasn't an issue, I ran some tests where I changed the
source to not include shortcuts. I get the same problem.

Attached is a short .txt file with a fragment of the output of an example
attempt to play a wma with d_source debugging ON. The example is an attempt
to play a Beatles song. It looks like it gets all the way down to the
command for conversion before it hits the "stream failed" error. It repeats
itself many times (not included). Does this help?

Also, if you can run with the --d_source debugging flag, the log should
show you the command line sent to wmadec. That'll tell us whether the
path is getting mangled before getting to wmadec.
