What steps will reproduce the problem?
1. XMB Music tab
2. Go to PMS Server
3. Try to play WMA music file

What is the expected output? What do you see instead?

Expecting to play the WMA file as music file. PS3 see the file as a MP3
instead of WMA and cannot play the music file.

What version of the product are you using? On what operating system?


If the media file is in error (or does not play flawlessly), what are the
codec informations of this file (you can use following program: ? 

WMA @ 192 (High quality), and they are working well on my computer.

Please provide any additional information below and PLEASE JOIN debug.log

I need the lines just after the "Attaching thread: win32/ffmpeg.exe"
(where ffmpeg is parsing the file)

Also, it should decode wma lossless to pcm; tversity does that quite nicely 
(although it gets the time length wrong resulting in an error message at the end of 
the file.)

ok, some wma files (these ones, and lossless ones according to jhovesen) need 
transcode, so I think I will force transcode for wma files (like I did with m4a and 
if someone has an objection...

Transcoding WMA files is a good solution.

Yes, I'm looking forward to have this function :-)
I have a lot of lossless WMAs on my MediaServer which the PS3 can't play.
