I've posted this over at SAS forums but thought I'd try here also.


I am hoping to use some of the sounds (wave files) from BOB II WoV for movie making with IL2 but have come across a minor problem.

In a subfolder of the game called Samples there are tons of .wav files with various sound effects from hydraulic hissing to chairs scraping.  These play on just about any media player with no problem.

The other sound effects I'm really interested in however are located in the subfolders Tower0,  Tower1, and Tower2 and include .wav files of WAAF ground controllers etc.

I cannot get any of these .wav files to play in any of my media players and always get the following message:
Windows Media Player cannot play the file. The Player might not support the file type or might not support the codec that was used to compress the file.

I understand there may be a different codec etc but I have no idea as to how to find out which codec may be required.

Any advice/suggestions is appreciated.

Try Audacity.

Its free, and will open a very spectrum of formats

Have you tried VLC as a player?  I've yet to have issues with VLC with any file.
