I am not sure what I am supposed to see other than the wave data in
binary. crap works. in fact, as i said in the first post (and as I
tried just now) by doing

cat crap | mplayer -demuxer rawaudio -rawaudio
channels=1:rate=48000:samplesize=2 -

I hear the original file, whereas if I have just "mplayer ... |
mplayer ..." I hear noise. Please, could you explain me what I should
see in that file?
