a wav file that has unknown type
« on: 26 Feb '18 - 03:14 »
Attached file has ctype (BASS_ChannelGetInfo) value 0x50006, and I was not able to find about this related defined value.
In some circumstances, the file did not play - It occured on specific win 7 OS environments, but it seems not be OS issue.
Check this file please.
Thanks!

With WAV files, the HIWORD is 5 and the LOWORD is the file's wFormatTag value. In this case, 6 = WAVE_FORMAT_ALAW (A-Law encoding). A list of wFormatTag values can be found here:
