I didn't try myself, but I suspect it doesn't. We DO use ffmpeg to decode the sound files of MI2SE which uses different codecs, so there would be really no reason not to use it with MI1SE as well, except for incompatibility.fingolfin wrote:Back to topic: It would be really interesting to know if ffmpeg can decode these files or not.
There was a long format discussion over at LucasForums
Btw. Monkey Island Explorer also needs xWMAencode to play the samples in question.
I don't think there is a reason for replacing SoX as suggested. It is GPL after all. I don't use it only to encode files, but also for editing, eg. trimming CD tracks, mixing some noises with voice files, dynamic processing for some out of place recordings. Also its resampling algorithm is one of the best available. (Which once lead someone to belief that the produced 8 bit monster.sou sounds too good to be real)
