Any way I can play/remux/transcode xma files?
I have some xma files extracted from a videogame. But so far I found nothing that can do anything with them. The programs that support xma fail.

Here's an example:

FFMPEG can tell channel, bitrate, but claims an unknown decoder:
Code: [Select]
Input #0, wav, from '_RIGHTS__CherryBomb.xma':
  Duration: 00:02:00.25, bitrate: 132 kb/s
    Stream #0:0: Audio: none (f[1][0][0] / 0x0166), 44100 Hz, 2 channels, 132 kb/s
No decoder for stream #0:0, filtering impossible
Error opening filters!

You'll have to locate XMAEncode and decode it with that.

Could you elaborate on this? Where/how can I find it?  (Google keeps suggesting XWMAEncode)

AFAICS this file is not xWMA

What do you mean by that?
I didn't claim it is, I assumed it's xma based on the file extension. The wiki you linked warns that the two are not the same.

You mean  xWMAEncode.exe from the directx sdk which someone shared here?
It doesn't work by the way. But with two other tools (xmash, towav) I could convert it to wav so that's something...

The file size difference enermous so I guess it's actually some sort of packed wma.  So I guess there isn't a way to convert it to normal wma without re-encoding? The multimedia.cx article doesn't make me to optimistic.
