{{page>menu}} ====== Audio Codec Support ====== Nightingale can play a number of different audio formats. However it doesn't play anything. If you're unsure if Nightingale can play your file, check out this table. ===== By File extension ===== File extensions marked with (Yes) need uncommon or further packages or software to be installed on your system. See your operating system's chapter below. The last column indicates if Nightingale can read and write the metadata of the filetype. ^ File extension ^ Windows ^ Mac OS X ^ Linux ^ Metadata ^ ^ .wav | @lightgreen:Yes | @lightgreen:Yes | @lightgreen:Yes | | ^ .ogg/.oga | @lightgreen:Yes | @lightgreen:Yes | @lightgreen:Yes | rw | ^ .flac | @lightgreen:Yes | @lightgreen:Yes | @lightgreen:Yes | rw | ^ .aac | @lightblue:(Yes) | | @lightblue:(Yes) | | ^ .m4a/.m4r/.m4p | @lightblue:(Yes) | | @lightblue:(Yes) | r | ^ .mp3 | @lightgreen:Yes | | @lightblue:(Yes) | rw | ^ .mp2 | @lightgreen:Yes | | @lightgreen:Yes | | ^ .mp1 | @lightgreen:Yes | | @lightgreen:Yes | | ^ .wma | @lightgreen:Yes | | @lightgreen:Yes | | ^ .spc | @lightgreen:Yes | | @lightgreen:Yes | | ^ .s3m | @lightgreen:Yes | | @lightgreen:Yes | | ^ .mxmf | @lightgreen:Yes | | @lightgreen:Yes | | ^ .w64 | @lightgreen:Yes | | @lightgreen:Yes | | ^ .aiff | @lightgreen:Yes | | @lightgreen:Yes | | ^ .voc | @lightgreen:Yes | | @lightgreen:Yes | | ^ .sid | @lightgreen:Yes | | @lightgreen:Yes | | ^ .wvp | @lightgreen:Yes | | @lightgreen:Yes | | ^ .ult | @lightgreen:Yes | | @lightgreen:Yes | | ^ .imelody | @lightgreen:Yes | | @lightgreen:Yes | | ^ .ay | @lightgreen:Yes | | @lightgreen:Yes | | ^ .sds | @lightgreen:Yes | | @lightgreen:Yes | | ^ .gbs | @lightgreen:Yes | | @lightgreen:Yes | | ^ .it | @lightgreen:Yes | | @lightgreen:Yes | | ^ .aifc | @lightgreen:Yes | | @lightgreen:Yes | | ^ .gsm | @lightgreen:Yes | | @lightgreen:Yes | | ^ .imy | @lightgreen:Yes | | @lightgreen:Yes | | ^ .tta | @lightgreen:Yes | | @lightgreen:Yes | | ^ .med | @lightgreen:Yes | | @lightgreen:Yes| | ^ .mpga | @lightgreen:Yes | | @lightgreen:Yes | | ^ .qcp | @lightgreen:Yes | | @lightgreen:Yes | | ^ .aif | @lightgreen:Yes | | @lightgreen:Yes | | ^ .3gp | @lightgreen:Yes | | @lightgreen:Yes | | ^ .wv | @lightgreen:Yes | | @lightgreen:Yes | | ^ .vgm | @lightgreen:Yes | | @lightgreen:Yes | | ^ .ilbc | @lightgreen:Yes | | @lightgreen:Yes | | ^ .amr | @lightgreen:Yes | | @lightgreen:Yes | | ^ .shn | @lightgreen:Yes | | @lightgreen:Yes | | ^ .paf | @lightgreen:Yes | | @lightgreen:Yes | | ^ .imf | @lightgreen:Yes | | @lightgreen:Yes | | ^ .ac3 | @lightgreen:Yes | | @lightgreen:Yes | | ^ .midi/.mid | @lightgreen:Yes | | @lightgreen:Yes | | ^ .sam | @lightgreen:Yes | | @lightgreen:Yes | | ^ .nist | @lightgreen:Yes | | @lightgreen:Yes | | ^ .mod | @lightgreen:Yes | | @lightgreen:Yes | | ^ .sap | @lightgreen:Yes | | @lightgreen:Yes | | ^ .snd | @lightgreen:Yes | | @lightgreen:Yes | | ^ .au | @lightgreen:Yes | | @lightgreen:Yes | | ^ .669 | @lightgreen:Yes | | @lightgreen:Yes | | ^ .iff | @lightgreen:Yes | | @lightgreen:Yes | | ^ .mtm | @lightgreen:Yes | | @lightgreen:Yes | | ^ .amf | @lightgreen:Yes | | @lightgreen:Yes | | ^ .kss | @lightgreen:Yes | | @lightgreen:Yes | | ^ .gdm | @lightgreen:Yes | | @lightgreen:Yes | | ^ .stx | @lightgreen:Yes | | @lightgreen:Yes | | ^ .okt | @lightgreen:Yes | | @lightgreen:Yes | | ^ .nsf | @lightgreen:Yes | | @lightgreen:Yes | | ^ .ime | @lightgreen:Yes | | @lightgreen:Yes | | ^ .gym | @lightgreen:Yes | | @lightgreen:Yes | | ^ .dsm | @lightgreen:Yes | | @lightgreen:Yes | | ^ .svx | @lightgreen:Yes | | @lightgreen:Yes | | ^ .xm | @lightgreen:Yes | | @lightgreen:Yes | | ^ .adts | @pink:No | | @lightblue:(Yes) | | ^ .adif | @pink:No | | @lightblue:(Yes) | | ^ .eac3 | @pink:No | | @lightblue:(Yes) | | ^ .loas | @pink:No | | @lightblue:(Yes) | | ^ .dts | @pink:No | | @lightblue:(Yes) | | ===== By Codec ===== This table doesn't cover each codec Nightingale can play. ^ Codec ^ Windows ^ Mac OS X ^ Linux ^ ^ Ogg Vorbis | @lightgreen:Yes | | @lightgreen:Yes | ^ FLAC | @lightgreen:Yes | | @lightgreen:Yes | ^ AAC | @lightblue:(Yes) | | @lightblue:(Yes) | ===== Get the information yourself ===== You can check what your installation of Nightingale supports by executing the following command in the Error Console: <code> var ext = Components.classes["@songbirdnest.com/Songbird/Mediacore/TypeSniffer;1"].createInstance(Components.interfaces.sbIMediacoreTypeSniffer).audioFileExtensions,ret='';while(ext.hasMore()) { ret+= " "+ext.getNext();}Components.utils.reportError(ret); </code> ===== Expanding the playable formats ===== ==== On Windows ==== In order to play mp4 containers like AAC or ALAC files you need to have QuickTime installed on your system. ==== On Linux ==== The supported formats are dependent on your system's gstreamer plugins. Codecs which aren't supported by the good gstreamer plugins should be marked as (Yes) in the above tables. To learn how you can add support for more extensions, read [[developer_center:articles:setting_up_gstreamer|Setting up GStreamer]]. ===== See Also ===== [[video_codec_support]] [[playlist_format_support]]
