Hi Steve :)

Thanks for the info. Yes, I need that info a lot. You see, I made this MPEG
encoder that multiplexes a PCM and an MPEG-video stream, however, no player
I can find can play the PCM stream. And it stands to reason, because there
are various sample rates that can be used for a PCM stream, and the player
has to find that out somehow or the other. I tried writing a RIFF header,
but that did not help either. I'm quite puzzled about this, and even the
all-knowing google could not help much :)

It would be nice if you could direct me to someone who could tell me this,
yes, and thanks a lot!

I'm not really a pro for MPEG streams. But it's very unlikely that it uses
the WAV (RIFF) header for PCM data. But I don't know how the format is
recognised in interleaved MPEG streams... If you need these info I can
redirect you to the right people :)
