I am getting "ERROR: unsupported format type 17" when attempting to encode WAV files from a particular recorder. According to http://www.onicos.com/staff/iz/formats/wav.html type 0x0017 is "Dialogic OKI ADPCM", but that does not explain what exactly is the problem with that format. So, out of curiosity, what IS it about Dialogic OKI ADPCM that makes the FLAC encoder unable to read it?

More generally, because being given a type number without any direction as to where to look it up is not terribly helpful, could we get more explanatory error messages when the encoder encounters an unsupported format?
