File formats

The FTW Transcriber plays a huge range of file types, including, in alphabetical order:

3gpp, aac, ac3, ape, asf, dat, dss, ds2, dts, flac, flv, hdmov, it, m2ts, mkv, mkv, mo3, mod, mov, mp3, mp4, mpeg, mpg, mtm, nuv, ogg, ogm, ps, s3m, ts, tta, umx, vi, vob, vorbis, wav, wma, wmv, wv, xm

If you have difficulty playing a particular file type, update your Windows Media Player, and also install the latest version of the FTW Transcriber, ensuring during installation that you install all three codecs for which you see prompts, i.e. XP Codec, Sony wav, and Olympus dss.

The XP Codec can also be downloaded here:

To play even more file types, please install these codecs:

If you cannot play dss or ds2 files, please click on this link to install the required codec:

If you still have difficulty after that, please contact us.

Note that when the FTW Transcriber plays certain file types, it first converts them to wav.
