On Windows 7, using the latest FFmpeg binaries (version N-61143-g64e4bd7), the result Y.wav of the following command is invalid.

ffmpeg -i X.wav -f f32le -ar 22050 Y.wav

The input X.wav is a valid WAV file, mono, sample format f32le, rate 44100Hz.

The objective was to convert the sample rate from 44100 to 22050.

The result Y.wav is invalid.

Windows Media Player reports invalid format (and does not play).

FFmpeg itself reports invalid data:

ffmpeg -i Y.wav

  • Resolution set to invalid
  • Status changed from new to closed

Replying to marius63:

ffmpeg -i X.wav -f f32le -ar 22050 Y.wav

This command forces ffmpeg to output a raw pcm file (format f32le) which cannot be auto-detected, not a wav file. If you want 32bit audio in your wav file, use -acodec pcm_s32le -f wav
