Unsupported file format. Please use only WAV or OGG files

Post by RadhaKumari »

I recently downloaded the 64 bit version of Open vibe and ran the scenario erp-2-record-signal.xml. While it used to run smoothly before on previous version of Open Vibe(I guess 32 bit versions) , now I get the error: Unsupported file format. Please use only WAV or OGG files
I gave the correct path , all required administrative privileges, but in vain.
What is the possible problem here, and can it be rectified? The full error is:
[ ERROR ] At time 0.000 sec <Box algorithm::(0x00003631, 0x00001ebf) aka Sound Player> ALUT initialization returned a bad status.
[ ERROR ] At time 0.000 sec <Box algorithm::(0x00003631, 0x00001ebf) aka Sound Player> ALUT ERROR:

Hi,

thats probably the sound player box. It works for me on Windows 10 + 64bit build, but I think I saw the same error on a virtual machine without soundcard emulation.

Do you get the same result with the sound player tutorial?


Cheers,
J.

Not sure what could be wrong. If the audio part of the scenario is not critical to you, you can remove or disable the box to sidestep the problem.

Do other users have issues on 64bit version of OV with the sound player or does it work?

Long term solution might be to develop a more modern box with something other than ALUT, if the reason for the issue is somehow that ALUT is not actovely maintained. Maybe implementation on directx could be an option on Win.


Best,

I dig up this post a bit. I have the same problem at home, I had to install OpenAl (download from their official website) for it to work.
