This page describes Audio Tests that we've run with LibreOffice on Windows to test our media support.

HINT: For a summary of supported media types, look at the tables on the primary Media Support page.

Audio Test Results

REMEMBER: On Windows we use DirectShow for video playback. If there is not a DirectShow filter present for a particular codec or Windows Media Player cannot play a particular file, LibreOffice probably won't be able to play that file.


Audio: 5.3.6.1 / 5.4.2.2 / 6.0 alpha 1

Yousuf (Jay) ran tests on these systems on 2017-10-21:

  • Windows XP without K-Lite Codec Pack and LibreOffice 5.3.6.1
  • Windows 7 with and without K-Lite Codec Pack 13.6.0 Standard and LibreOffice 5.4.2.2
  • Windows 8.1 with K-Lite Code Pack 12.2.2 Full and LibreOffice 6.0 alpha 1

Results:

  • Without K-Lite Codec Pack installed, Windows XP and 7 could playback the AU/AIFF, MP2, MP3, WAV, and WMA audio files.
  • With K-Lite Codec Pack installed, Windows 7 and 8.1 could playback all audio files.
  • The full results can be found on this Google Spreadsheet.

Audio: 4.3.4.1

Note: The results below did not work due to bug 113322.

Jay and Jay's friend ran some tests:

  • Windows 7
  • Klite codec pack 10.6.5 (Jay used k-lite mega codec pack 10.7.1)
  • TDF build of LibreOffice 4.3.4.1

General results: Did not work

Jay repeated the test with 5.0 master (daily) from 2012-12-23, w/the same results.
