Where did you get an audio file from that has that extension? (not that extensions mean a lot in linux)

Guess you could try changing the extension to .wav or .ogg and try VLC but it shouldn't care and will still not play it.


My dog plays Arf and Wooof files.


Ok, OK just a joke.

I am getting following error:
Code:
[zetro@laptop nbr2_mp4]$ ./nbr2mp4 ../thrive.arf ../thrive.mp4 6
nbr2mp4: unable to open display ":0.0"
Also
Code:
export DISPLAY=":0.0"
is not fixing this problem (as mentioned by some forums).

This might help on the conversion.

The second complaint are about how to use X. Not sure why it is saying that exactly. When you convert or if you convert this data it should end up as a mp4 but may be also trying to play it. I'd see if you can convert it properly first.

Could be right, unless of course you're not? The internet is for Linux try google play (only not really...)

If you want to convert ARF to MP4, WMV or SWF, also try WebEx Network Recording Player.

If you want to extract audio like MP3, WAV, M4A, etc from ARF, try Faasoft ARF to MP3 Converter.

Hope this will help you more or less.
So, a program that's only for Mac and Windows will help a Linux user....how??? And a 'free trial' version means this is commercial spam.
