    Exclamation [WINE] How to install Windows Media Player 11 in openSUSE ??

    I want to install my favorite player WMP11 in Linux, but the Setup fails in validation !!!

    I'm confused
    i there a possible to force install wmp11 with wine in linux ??

    I have a lot of music in WAV + tagged with RIFF Tags, wmp can read riff tags...

    Amarok can't!

    is there another player that can read RIFF Tags from WAV files????

    Use Linux and Linux Players or Windows and Windows Players.

    All other approaches are crappy by default. It will not work properly.

    I also do not think using wine and wmp 11 is a suitable way.
    Take a look at wavpack it should contain tools to handle riff.

    I don't even have any I can try
    But you realize you locked yourself in to that setup when you chose to use it, or Microsoft lead you that way.... I wonder why?

    I'll have a go at playing one if you email a tune to me. I'll PM a email to you

    I found a .wav online
    It plays fine

    As for the riff tags - no idea

    It seems that lame can convert riff/wav: I would give it a try and then your files can be played on every platform without wmp 11
    Found this here but cannot test since I have no riff files:
