VLC can encode and decode this container.
The module name to use at the command line is wav.

WAVE is a way of storing audio, which is normally uncompressed. It is based on RIFF.

Accepted audio codecs

  • dummy: Uncompressed audio of various types, based on storing integer values of the amplitude of the sound (see PCM).
  • fl32: Floating point 32-bit uncompressed audio, also based on PCM but allowing the values to be stored as floating point data types. This can give better quality audio when the sound becomes quiet.
