8 About any non-specialized audio players will support .wav alongside
9 any popular formats (ogg, mp3, etc...). No need to be looking for a
10 wav-only player.
12 When just want to play about anything supported by ffmpeg, video
13 players can be simple too, aka media-video/mpv can play .wav from
14 the command line (also supports many audio output backends).
16 For basic tools, there's "aplay" from alsa-utils, or "play" from
17 media-sound/sox (SoX can also be used to work on wav files from the
18 command line, transform, trim, adjust volume, etc...).
