Could anyone confirm what codec is used with the VFX Voice Mail WAV file sent to your e-mail?

I would like to be able to listen to the voice mails through my Pocket PC, but if it's using u-Law than that isn't working - better wold be PCM...

Any ideas?

4 bits 32kbps (8kHz sample rate).  Likely to be supported on your PDA, or there will be a free CODEC available somewhere (usually with dictaphone software).  It was developed back in the days when micros were too slow to do multiplication for real time audio streaming.

You can never have enough Volvos!

I use TCPMP on my Treo which works pretty well. There is a PocketPC version as well. It is freeware and seems to do a good job of video too....



My views (except when I am looking out their windows) are not those of my employer.
