Ticket #32828 (closed defect: worksforme)
SOX Outputs invalid headers with 24bit wav files when using OS 10.6.8
|Reported by:||michael@…||Owned by:||hans@…|
With either an updated macports and SOX (to Macports 2.0.3 and SOX 14.3.2), or on a cleanly installed system running OS 10.6.8 there is an error with SOX outputting 24bit wav files.
The error is that the file has padding, this can easily be seen by using the BWF MetaEdit software which shows the error as follows:
"An odd byte length chunks exists that is not immediately followed by a NULL byte. This could cause problems in reading subsequent chunks in some systems."
This does not happen for every single file, but at least 50% of files tested.
This bug does not occur on a system running OS 10.6.7 and macports 2.0.3 with SOX 14.3.2
This bug can make the files incompatible with some other audio software.
Please note this bug has been seen on a number of machines.
- Keywords SOX removed
- Owner changed from macports-tickets@… to david@…
- Port changed from SOX to sox
