.WAV Files won't play on some computers
Posted on 2016-11-01
I have a rather urgent need to play certain .wav files on a particular computer. There are five files that were created the same way, two will play and three will not. The only difference I can see is that the ones that will play are 17 kbps bitrate, and the ones that won't are 19 kbps. All are small files (under 1 MB). The ones that won't play don't play in Windows Media Player (encountered a problem while playing the file), VLC (nothing happens), iTunes (doesn't even show up as files when added). However there are two computers that do successfully play the files. Those computers are identical to each other and I assume have different sound cards from the ones that won't play it. Unfortunately, those computers are not in the location where we need these files to play. Does anyone have any idea what can be done on the computer that is in the right location to make it play? Also, on the computers that do play it I used VLC to convert to an MP4 and that didn't work either. Help!!!
