My windows computers have no problem playing wavpack files, but what can play them on linux? I haven't been able to figure it out since there are no libs. Sorry if this is a dumb question.

Alley_cat, a long time supporter of the matroska project, has recently coded a TTA plugin for Gstreamer. You might ask him about a Wavpack plugin also. He is often on
#matroska, irc.corecodec.com , and #gstreamer irc.freenode.net ....

Until you get a plugin for your favorite media player, you can write a little script to use the command line tools.

You ought to have a command called 'wavplay' or 'play' on Linux. Look for a program called 'audioplay' on the *BSDs

plug this command into a little script:

CODE
#!/bin/sh
# wvplay - play wavpack on command line

for file in "$@"; do
    echo "np: $file"
    wvunpack "$file" - | wavplay -
done


and then

$ wvplay *.wv

There's also a bash script that Speek created here (I'm not sure what the difference is between the two):

Obviously, an XMMS plugin would be ideal. I may be able to do this with a friend who does a lot of development on Linux, but I'm not sure when that might happen. In the meantime anyone is welcome to take the WavPack library and try to do this... smile.gif

There is a xmms-meta-input plugin.
This plugin allows you to write XMMS plugins as Unix programs.
I write a wavpack script and put it in the /usr/lib/xmms/Input/Meta.
Therefore, xmms can play *.wv, but it can't seek music. tongue.gif
However, it's a solution before bryant release the real xmms-plugin.
CODE
#!/bin/sh

case "$1" in
play)
wvunpack -q "$2" -
exit 0
;;
isOurFile)
if echo "$2" | grep -q \.[wW][vV];then
exit 0
else
exit -1
fi
;;
esac
exit -1
