I was able to upload a WAV file through CC-Web and it played fine in studio.

This would not be easy to implement right now, because we use TagLib to read the length of the audio clip, and TagLib does not support WAV. It supports MPC (musepack) and FLAC, so those could be added easily.

Gstreamer 0.10 can read audio lengths, so when we switch to that, this will be easy to do. Or maybe it can be done with 0.8, too? I don't know how much extra work that would be.

  • owner changed from anonymous to markey.
  • milestone changed from future to 1.3.0-Dakar.

According to markey, Amarok has a custom plugin for WAV support; it would be good to either add that plugin to our TagLib or hope that the upstream developer can include the plugin directly into TagLib.

This is also related to #1837.

We're on GStreamer 0.10 now, let's at least analyze this again.
