    I've never got on with FF. Endless updates and still some basic things didn't work.

    I have no idea what's up with Firefox, I use Opera myself, it always works just fine. To download from the link I posted earlier, right-click it and select 'Save Target As...' or something similar.

    we are coming closer! all downloaded .wav files are just 19 KB "big"!!!
    your link generated some success: quicktime appaers in the ff-window and play the file!
    now, how can i save it on my harddisk? (sorry, i m a beginner.)
    thanks. kanzan

    Just because it ends in ".wav", doesn't mean it is a wav. You can check the filesize, see if it's what the wav is supposed to be (4.86 MB). If it's much smaller, it might be an incomplete download or totally wrong download.
    See what happens if you try to download the file from this link here: http://www.freesound.org/download/15826/15826_transitking_telephonering.wav

    thanks for your welcoming! (and i will not start new threads with the same problem. i beg your pardon!)

    i was using Audacity 1.3.6 and now i tried with wavepad/masters. - well. same problem! i start to become teary.
    your other questions: it looks like succeeding in downloading .wav files. (it is not ending up with .php it is ending .wav - like i wrote.) yes, i can play a wav files on my computer. but not one of these, witch i downloaded from freesound.
    well, you have any more idea? hope so!
    thanks.

    Kanzan, may I first begin by welcoming you to freesound. I hope you like it here!

    Sounds like you have a potencialy very serious softwear problem with the softwear you have. I am mildly surprised that nothing is happening with Audacity – what version are you using? But the programme that I use most of the time is wavepad:
    http://www.nch.com.au/wavepad/masters.html

    Alternatively, type “wavepad” into google search. It works for me and hasn’t failed yet…

    Hope this helps.

    hy, in download some wavefiles (FF 3.03 on Windows XP SP2). But with all software i tried it was impossible to play or to convert the files. I tried also what is here in the forum recommended: "Audacity" and "dBpoweramp Music Converter" - i get allways somehow the answer "file doesn`t work" (i download some other fles and again the same files - allways no function!)
    What are all you doing different? You have now problems? What kind of information do you need to give me helpful answer???
    thanks a lot!
    greetings.

    If size is an issue for you then the lossless FLAC would be the answer surely.

    How are you trying to use the file? What sort of file is it? What software are you using? How many questions can you ask in one forum post?

    I'd like to integrate freesound.org with LMMS (lmms.sourceforge.net). Would this be ok with the site admins? We would conform to any constraints you might want to put on the relationship, display a freesound ad banner, etc. It would be really nice to have an API though. What say you?

    I have submitted a file called Answerphone UK. It might not have passed moderation in time though.

    Is this the kind of sound? http://www.freesound.org/samplesViewSingle.php?id=51710
    The user has many similar sounds if you need.

    Good luck!

    Does anybody know where I can get some "sparkles"? They are hard to describe. It's a familiar sound that happens when something magical happens or some one falls in love etc. Cheesey I know, but I'm doing a school project right now that requires animating a fairy tale in Flash and adding sound.

    Thanks grin

    If I am using a lot of sounds for a video going to DVD(say 20-30 or so for background, foley, etc.), is it alright if I include a page of Credits in the DVD menu that shows the makers of the sounds, rather than listing the whole entire bunch in the credits of the film?

    Thanks! smile
