The ID field that was added for AIFC is Compression Type. If it says
'sowt' (which is 'twos' backwards), then it's just like a regular
AIFF, but little-endian. If you want to read this, then you need to
confirm that the file type in the 'FORM' chunk is 'AIFC', not 'AIFF',
and you should also confirm that the size of the 'COMM' chunk is
actually large enough to hold the extra field.

What's the field to read in the header to discover that?
Do not post admin requests to the list. They will be ignored.
