Telemeta does not recognize my audio files

Description

Whenever I try to backup an audio file, I get an error saying it's "not an audio file". I tried with several WAV files.

I'm using Telemeta 0.2.5-2, from the Debian package.

Here's the log:

Telemeta analyses the content of the audio file to get the right type (OGG, MP3, FLAC, WAV or AIFF).
This feature is given by a 'file' command. Could you give me the output of a :

file /tmp/untitled.wav

Thanks

Here's the output:

/tmp/burglar.wav: RIFF (little-endian) data, WAVE audio, Microsoft PCM, 16 bit, stereo 44099 Hz

telemeta issues:

/tmp/burglar.wav is not an audio file !

burglar.wav is a WAV file exported from Jackbeat, as the untitled.wav file in my original post.

I though the framerate (44099 Hz) was a bit weird so I made another WAV file out of my mp3s, using mpg123.

Here's what file says:

/tmp/superstition.wav: RIFF (little-endian) data, WAVE audio, Microsoft PCM, 16 bit, stereo 44100 Hz

And telemeta still complains:

/tmp/superstition.wav is not an audio file !

By the way, I'm using revision r27

I see that you now rely on the detected mime type:
source:trunk/telemeta/export/core.py@56#L178

This bug seems fixed. The exporters properly process my WAV files. I think you should close this bug.
