Where can I find music fie with wav extension?!!!

Hello group,

I know this might sound crazy but since I have never looked for music on internet so I'm not sure where I can get some legal wave file (*.wav). I must write a C code to paly few wave files (song) and have no idea I can get some. I tried some web pages but they just cause trouble and pop up so many pages and no results then.


any help is appreciated.

Regards,
ak

If you aren't picky about what .wav files you are playing, windows comes installed with a few default .wav files that would be suitble to use for a class assignment which this seems to be.  Just do a search on your c:\ for .wav and they will come up.

akohan,

If you want songs then you can have Windows Media Player "rip" a song from one of your CDs.  It can make it into a WAV file.  I don't know your current version of that program but some versions have .wav as the default file type when ripping in Media Player.  If you need to test with a song and have a CD player this is the best way to get the file.  Downloading from the Internet could make the source and legality questionable.  Also .wav files, especially for songs, are rare on the Internet because it is a poor format to use for size.  The file size will be almost 10 times bigger than a mp3 if I remember right.

Let me know if you have any questions or need more information.

try audacity at http://audacity.sourceforge.net/
the software will save music in different formats - you it can open an mp3 file and export it as a wav,.
audacity is also open source so you can download the sourcecode forthis app - to help you read wav files  http://audacity.sourceforge.net/download/source

Hi Wcombee,

No, the wave files on Windows won't work since they are short. I"m looking for a normal music with at least 2 minutes period.

Thank anyway!
