APE sound files don't play

This is hrev39962.

Shouldn't APE files be supported by Haiku through ffmpeg? They don't play back in MediaPlayer neither in VLC. Here's a sample APE file (it might just be the only one on the net, for all my google skillz...)

Working link for the sample file:

It can't be decoded by ffmpeg, which detects it as "0 bits per sample". I tried merging but this didn't work. Can this file be decoded on other systems? I'm wondering if the only APE file out on the internet may be corrupt or from an older version of the format (apparently there was a change at some point).

I'm closing this and assuming the file is corrupt/invalid until someone can share more files with similar problems.

I just did a check with VLC for Android. It plays, but there are some problems with time updating randomly (jumping from 0:01 to 0:05). I don't know if that is a bug in VLC's handling of the format or a problem with the file.

In hrev48472 I fixed the build of the ape_reader. However it doesn't work very well, it seems to decode things but the CPU usage is very high and it freezes the MediaPlayer and the Terminal I was running it in.

Fixed in hrev48474.
