hi Dave

by coincidence, an unencrypted dvda just landed on my hard drive. Do
i assume correctly that there are no aob demuxers available? Mplayer
seems to have some support, but on 1.0pre6 it detects this file as
stereo 96k with a wordlength of 0bits. I havnt tried cvs.

so just out of interest, are current players too useless to play wav files,
or are you looking for some other additional feature of the aob format?
