Most of the mobile devices support only wav encoding for record audio. For this reason, LeMill should support wav upload to support LeMill audio capture function.

In that case we should add all kind of variants of WAV mimetypes to the MIMITYPE_WHITELIST.

I've found several variants: audio/wav, audio/x-wav, audio/x-ms-wav, audio/wave

Or some of the files might not be addable.

A bigger problem is that our embedded players and Flash players only work with mp3. This means we'll need a whole pipeline on the server to transcode whatever audio (and video) formats to the formats that we can display.

In this case, the ticket has changed to "LeMill should support audio/video trenscoding".

Let's make LeMill to support wav.

Does this mean that PILOTs should also accept wav format audio? Because our current flash player does not.

We should support ONLY those media files that can be played inside web browser (that is in some Flash-based player). I haven't found a Flash player that supports other formats than mp3.

There is already a story about converting uploaded audio files (WAV, OGG, etc) to MP3. I think it might be possible with PyMedia: #1048

Should we close this ticket as a duplicate of #1048 ?
