Opening WAV files containing MPEG data (e.g. mp2, mp3) with "soxi" returns the following hint:
"Try overriding the encoding: e.g. for an MP3 WAV, `-t mp3'"
Soxi does not provide the option to override the detected type, so it's impossible to follow the given "hint".
Here is the full output:
soxi formats: detected file format type `wav'
soxi wav: WAV Chunk bext
soxi wav: WAV Chunk fmt
soxi formats: can't open input file `xxx.wav': Unhandled WAV file encoding (MPEG).
Try overriding the encoding: e.g. for an MP3 WAV, `-t mp3'
Thanks for your great work!
btw: It would be great if soxi could read these files, but that's a separate feature request, I guess...
