I experimented with the System sound Glass.aiff, moving a copy to
various locations within my home directory, and had no problem
playing it either directly from the command line or via do shell
I was also able to use afplay to play .mp3 files, but ran into an
identical error with some OS 9 Sound Files, and a similar error
(Error: ExtAudioFileOpen failed ('dta?') with some other file types.
Information on ExtAudioFileOpen errors is pretty sparse, and I'm not
sure I'd understand it even if the three-letter identifiers were
defined somewhere findable.
Sadly, kAudioFileUnspecifiedError (the symbolic name for the string
"wht?") means: "An unspecified error has occurred"... :-(
