which deb package is required to preview .wav
Hi Guys,

Does anybody know which deb package is required in order to preview WAV files?

What I mean by this is that the WAV file starts playing when the mouse cursor is hovering over the icon for a WAV file.

I used to have this working, but I just re-installed Ubuntu and now it wont preview WAV files when I hover the mouse over the icons.

Funny enough it previews when I hover over MP3 files after installing win32codec pack. And this never ever used to work with MP3 files for me.

Preview of WAV files in Nautilus started to work after installing "sox"

So I guess you need the "sox" package for WAV file preview to work.
