Re: Speaktime wavplay problem Debian Buster on PiRLP

Thank you Dave & Dave.

@Dave C.  when you have the chance if you can let me know what my options are for getting it to work, or for further diagnostics, I would appreciate it.

@Dave Parks:  to your point I decided to try it another way, interesting results...

repeater@stn3671:~$ key
repeater@stn3671:~$ play /home/irlp/features/speaktime/audio/the_time_is.wav
play WARN alsa: can't encode 0-bit Unknown or not applicable
 File Size: 5.75k     Bit Rate: 64.7k

repeater@stn3671:~$ unkey

So, "play" works but "aplay" doesn't.  Even though "play" just calls "aplay".  Hmmm.

This whole issue was discussed a while ago, and it all pertains to the
use of the sox program, specifically two flags that are deprecated.

I made updates to the systems that I build, but since I am not the
writer of the original scripts, I was not able to update them.

The problems extend to EchoIRLP as well - same issue - sox is using
arguments that are no longer supported.

I am not in a place that I can pull up the details, sorry.
