Re: [PLUG] big/little endian?

Endianness is a hardware thing. Intel x86,x64, and itaniums are always little endian. This isn't your issue.

I'd bet your trouble is some sort of codec compliance issue. Perhaps a version issue?

Also if the file is somehow corrupted, or incorrectly encoded, some programs might be more lenient with inline repairs than others.

I'm not a media guru, but some out there might have some suggestions about what other programs to try - that's the road I'd head down lat least.

I don't understand big and little endian.  I don't even know if that is my

created them.

On the Mac, they play fine in Songbird and VLC, but won't decode to WAV with
any software I tried, including MacFLAC.They all calim the stream is invalid.

I copied the files to my 64-biit Linux PC, and k3b seems to have as little
problem with them as Songbird and VLC.

Is this an Endian-thing?  What else could be causing the problem?
