Here is a sample .ACT file, on which is heard my voice saying it is an
.ACT file.

It was produced on a common S1MP3 player, such as those described at .

I attach it to this bug in the hope that it help you one day when you
get around to implementing playing .ACT files. Thanks.

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

There is already a patch for FFmpeg:
Due to that and since demuxer development via FFmpeg is preferred, this is a WONTFIX from MPlayer side.
You would still be missing a G.729A decoder though, a patch for which is available on the same list but also unfinished.
Note that both probably work (in ffplay, MPlayer probably needs a tiny bit of additional work), they are just not completely up to FFmpeg coding standards and a lot FFmpeg developers are quite busy with other stuff, too.

Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
