I came across this odd bug in silverlight 2.0 Beta. For some reason some of my MP3 files were playing fine and some of my MP3 files were not playing at all. I was stumped for nearly an hour as to why this might be the case. The only difference between the files was the sample rate.
It seems that silverlight 2.0 doesn’t like playing MP3 files that used to be 22khz wav files. Changing the sample rate on my wavs to 44hz before using LAME to encode them to MP3s allowed me to playback the sound files as normal.
A little strange, guess I should report this bug to Microsoft – Maybe with broadband no one uses 22khz audio samples anymore.
