R Question

Set up default sound player

By using R packages like tuneR and seewave I generated sounds that I want to play with some software that is not Windows Media Player but I don't know how to set this up. This command

setWavPlayer("mplay32")


Is the only thing that works (and its WMP). When I try something like this

setWavPlayer("C:/Program Files/foobar2000/foobar2000.exe")


The synth or play command just gives this error when I try to playback my sound

'C:/Program' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file.


Any hints?

Answer

Here's what works for me under OSX: assuming I've installed an app called 'play.app' ,

setWavPlayer('/applications/play')

In your case it would appear that somewhere along the line your path string's space (in "Program[space]Files" ) is causing the string to be split up. That error message is pretty clearly coming from a CommandPrompt or similar shell. You may need to escape that space.
