Hey all,

I was bored yesterday, and wrote a little wav decoder which plays via OSS
-- it takes about 200 lines of code. Anyway, this works fine for 8KHz mono
wav files, but for the stereo 44Khz file it just produces a clicking

I am having some troubles identifying what to set SNDCTL_DSP_SETFMT to for
this data. I have tried AFMT_U16_LE and AFMT_S16_LE, but neither worked.

Does anyone have any hints / sample code for this? Would it be more
helpful if I posted a URL to my code?
