when ever I play 32 bit 192Khz stereo wave files they play at higher pitch but they also sound like a lower sample rate. the wave files play and sound like they should in sound recorder and other software.

my sound card does indeed support 32 bit 192KHz

Can you post an example of this?

Maybe you should convert it to 16 bit? Just sayin'.

Don't use WMP11 or any other version for that matter.
There are just too many better options out there.

Out of curiosity, how do you measure better objectively? :D

Does it do this with EVERY file encoded that way?
Have you tried a re-install/repair of WMP11?


Maybe everyone could list their favorite player?

Perhaps I'm missing the bubble. How do you measure better objectively?

sorry but vlc violates the dmca. I was able to convert a comercial dvd to a file on my computer without using decryption software so vlc gets around encrytpion and therefore should not be discussed here!

What tastes better? Apple pie or old gym socks?
That's the same method I used.

I think this thread needs to be closed because deltafowler recomended that I use a mediaplayer that can be used to violate the dmca.

Thank you, dorfd1.

We don't advocate breaking the law at all. However, in this case Mr. Fowler's apparent willingness to parry with the government is not this site's concern. We do advise all our members to follow all applicable laws and keep to all contracts they have agreed to.

Discussion of how to break the law is not permitted here, and as such I am redacting Mr. Fowler's posts on where to find VLC, although the information is freely available and I do not think it matters very much in practice whether the link is posted here.

Thank you?
Seriously?

The post prior to mine asked us to list our favorite players, so I did.
It's a public website offering GNU software.
What one does with it is their business.

The software CANNOT decrypt DVD's that use the most up-to-date protection methods.
So what's the cutoff?
Is Windows Media Player in violation of the caveman standards as well?
I can play MP3's from any source in it without proof of purchase.
I can rip CD's to MP3's with it as well. Then what's to stop me from sharing those files?

What about Internet Explorer?
I can use that to download copyrighted images from the web.

Applying this ridiculous logic from dorfd1, I should not be able to visit these sites either:

Ford.com - Because I could use one of their cars to speed.
DirecTV.com - Because I could use their PPV service to view pornography, which may violate decency standards in some communities.
Microsoft.com - Because I could use MS Word to write a ransom note or an anti-government manifesto.

What is wrong with you people?!
Seriously.
No, really. Seriously.

internet explorer included that functionality long before the DMCA so that is not ilegal.

sorry deltafowler but I was able to convert madagascar 2 escape to afriica. to another format using vlc

conversion of a dvd to another digital format is not built in to dvd players or windvd or powerdvd.

audio cds are not copy protected sp ripping them is not ilegal.

Please note:

After discussion by the staff we have decided to re-post the link to VLC. This does not in any way imply that DBSTalk approves of or encourages piracy or any illegal behavior. Use the link at your own risk.

Please direct any further discussion on whether or not that link should appear to a private message. Thank you.

Did you ever try playing the file VLC while you had it installed?
Have you tried it in any other players?
This could help to sort out whether the problem is in the file or in the player.

Well, at least we know what the problem is now.
Have you tried the obvious; uninstall and reinstall?
