The default music player does not play .wav files. Please help me.
you can use vlc or install codecs of it through internet...
Ensure you have installed the restricted extra's package from the software centre, you may also find the following worth a read.
If you are trying to import music from CD. Well,I was in the exactly same situation and was looking for the .wav codec for rhythmbox. But I rethink it over at the first place, wav codec means uncompressed format. So I just copy the wav files in the cd folder and paste them to music directry for Rhythmbox. After copy & paste, rename the files as you like.
The WAV file format isn't very practical for use in music players like Rhythmbox which want to present all the collected files in a library, because WAV doesn't support tagging (track name, artist, album name, genre, track number, etc.).
It's also very inefficient regarding diskspace because it's only using uncompressed PCM where lossless codecs like FLAC still deliver the exact same audio quality and usually provide tagging functionality.
To debunk the myth that only WAV delivers real CD quality:
I was able to play .wav files on Rhythmbox but some I'd taken off of newer CDs (one was from 2013) wouldn't play. Rhythmbox told me I need a "demuxer" but it was unable to find Ubuntu software for this. (Sorry this isn't an actual solution but I thought it might contribute to resolving the problem.)
