HowTo / Notes


Audio / Video File Support

For Codec support install QuickTime with winetricks. Tested with .mp3 audio and .mp4 video files.
I get missing gstreamer 32bit lib errors when I don't do this. So I suppose gstreamer could be an native alternative.

$ winetricks quicktime72

Set your Windows version to Vista or 7 in winetricks to get rid of the black screen bug from QuickTime.

Black Screen on Startup

If you have the screen cleared black on startup when you use QuickTime for codecs, you have encountered Bug 1347.

Set Wine to Windows 7 mode in winecfg to f­ix this.

Bad Audio Quality

If you have bad audio quality, try a sample rate of 48000 in the audio settings.

If this does not help and you use pulseaudio (default on Ubuntu), kill it. Kill it with fire. (sudo killall pulseaudio).
Make sure the audio test in winecfg sounds good and is played back completely.

Exporting / Rendering Audio

Currently you need to build wine yourself and apply this patch, as stated in Bug 15695.

$ git clone git:// && cd wine
$ patch -p1 < abletonexport.diff
$ ./configure && make -j3

Authorization File

Pass the path to the auz file as first parameter to Live.exe with an absolute Windows path. You only need to do this once.

$ wine Live.exe "C:\foo.auz"
