I have few audio files which have
.wav extension. I tried to get information about this file using
soxi <foo.wav> command but I got following error :
soxi FAIL formats: can't open input file foo.wav': Unknown WAV file encoding (type a100)
So I used
MediaInfo tool to get more information about this file I got following information about this file:
Format : Wave
File size : 51.4 KiB
Duration : 1mn 18s Overall
bit rate : 5 339 bps
Format : G.723.1
Codec ID : A100
Duration : 1mn 18s
Bit rate : 5 328 bps
Channel(s) : 1 channel
Sampling rate : 8 000 Hz
Stream size : 51.3 KiB (100%)
According to this information it seems like this file is has
G.723.1 format and SOX is not able to understand this format.
So I would like to know :
- My conclusion that SOX does not support this type of file is correct?
- If SOX does not support this type of file then installing some codec will help? I have seen
lamecommand on few web pages but not sure if it will help me or not.
Request super users to help !
Thanks in Advance !
