Anyone else having a problem playing the March 2016 audio?

So I downloaded this month's audio, and to my great surprise, it won't play in Maya. I get a "cannot find file" error. It won't play in Winamp, either. I have never had Winamp not be able to play an audio file before, ever, until now. But bizarrely, it plays just fine in Videolan's VLC. And last month's audio, and all the other audios from 11-second Club all work just fine.

Anyone else encountering this?

It does load and play in Sony Sound Forge just fine. As a workaround I can transcode it in Sound Forge into an uncompressed WAV, which does play in Maya and Winamp. I can't figure out why last month's audio works just fine but this month's doesn't. Any ideas?

It was a bit echoey/tinny when scrubbing in Blender, but it opened fine in Audacity and MPC-HC told me the file's actually an mp3 named .wav. Just renamed it to .mp3 and Winamp was happy. Don't have a current version of Maya to try it with. :B

Snapai: Cool! Changing the file extension from .wav to .mp3 did the trick for Winamp. Still won't work with Maya as the Windows version of Maya can only work with .aiff or .wav files, not .mp3s. But transcoding it to a true .wav fixes that.

Thank you for the help! smile
