.msv is a Sony audio file type.

How can I play this file on 12.04?

  • Do you mind providing an online sample in order to download it and run some testing? Thanks in advance. – Geppettvs D'Constanzo Oct 8 '12 at 16:15

Unfortunately, due to *.msv being proprietary in nature, it is extremely unlikely you'll find a way to actually play this file (unless Sony releases information on how to decode that file, which in itself is pretty unlikely).

Your best bet is to find a Windows machine that can convert the .msv into a .mp3, .wav, or *.ogg file and then playback the file in Ubuntu.

    The journey cited above is no longer documented; that link is 404'd, dead, deceased, pining for the fjords. – K7AAY Jun 6 '19 at 20:05
  • @K7AAY thanks, I've updated the submission to remove the dead link. It seems like the only way is to get hold of a Windows machine (physical or virtual) and use that to convert the .msv file. – somoso Jun 27 '19 at 14:14

Did you try mplayer? I've read somewhere that it can play back these files.

sudo apt-get install mplayer

Important note: I did not try it. Please try to use it to play the msv files and report the result for others to use!

    It doesn't work, with mplayer 1.3.0-7. – MadHatter Sep 27 '17 at 15:04
