"One or more of the selected filescannot be used by Ardour"
I've installed the 2.5 .deb on Kubuntu Hardy (Remix). Install went fine. Creating a new session is fine. No errors in the console. When I try and bring an audio file in (eg mp3/ogg) with import the file browser shows no files at all. Further examination with sndfile-info reveals:
Error : Not able to open input file Outlaws49.ogg.
File : Outlaws49.ogg
Length : 46436411
Parse error : File contains data in an unknown format.
Supported file format but file is malformed.
I get exactly the same thing with mp3's from every track I tried (around 25 tracks from 6 different sources). I'm only selecting files without spaces or special characters eg:
- - Outlaws49.ogg
- - SXSW08.INT.20080310.StartUpMetrics.mp3
- - dave001_advanced_testing.mp3
I have libsndfile1 (1.0.17-4) installed from Kubuntu repos. I also had the same error with Ardour (2.3?) installed straight from the Hardy repo's.
Any ideas anyone? Thanks!
