Any way to get the phones to play .wav audio files?
negative... i see it says it can but when i try i get unknown file type and it skips to my next mp3/aac
REALLY? I just played two .wav files of the SD on mine and they played just fine.
proof i tried with every player, lossless and lossy, what player?
Just the stock player, nothing special. They were old ringtones I used on my previous PPC phones that I still have stored on my memory card. lemme record a video real quick and I'll post it up.
edit: video's uploading at the moment, it's taking a bit..... Turn down your volume when you play it, I didn't realize how loud the phone was going to sound!
.wav files on my sd card work just fine as ringtones. They don't appear in the Music application. But they do play in the Music application when selected with Astro.
I'm actually trying to play a .wav file that is sent via email by my exchange server. It is a voicemail. I have tried saving it to my SD card and open it with the music app but it again says it does not play that file type. The HTC website says the phone plays .wav files (although the Verizon website doesn't mention it as a compatible file type). If I can't hear the voicemails I'm in trouble.
EDIT: Tried Astro too, no luck.
Hey Kibble... Which "File Manager" ap do I see there? Is it a good one?
Kind of point less if you ask me if you can't have a playlist, that's not how music should be played/listened to, separated,etc, when your can't capture the essence.
thx for the video
I just searched in the market for "file manager" and lo and behold there was an app called file manager. LOL
It's fairly simple and works just fine apparently, haven't had any problems with it.
I only played them that way to show that they did in fact play and had the .wav extension. They'll play just fine in a playlist too, I tried it. My only guess is the type of wav file some of you are trying to play may be encoded different, although I forgot what encoding I used to make those files.
