Title: Sound formats and their file extensions
Post by: Speek on 2001-11-10 11:52:46
I'm updating my Windows frontend for MAD and am running into the following problem.

MAD supports the following output formats:
cdda - - CD audio, 16-bit 44100 Hz stereo PCM (*.cdr, *.cda)
aiff - - Audio IFF, [16-bit] PCM (*.aif, *.aiff)
wave - - Microsoft RIFF/WAVE, [16-bit] PCM (*.wav)
snd - - Sun/NeXT audio, 8-bit ISDN mu-law (*.au, *.snd)
raw - - binary [16-bit] host-endian linear PCM

With the frontend I cannot let people choose between 2 file extensions for one sound format. So I'm wondering, what are the most common or most used extensions for:
cdda - - .cdr or .cda?
aiff - - .aif or .aiff?
snd - - .au or .snd?
raw - - what extension should I use?

Thanks for your help.
