If you're playing them in MoviePlayer, you can investigate the difference
between the good ones and the bad ones. Open a "good" wav, and Get Info,
and in the left pop-up go to "Sound TracK" Then examine all the parameters,
especially format, in the right pop-up. Do the same for a "bad" wav and
note the difference.
I said "especially format" because it is my understanding that some
Mac programs don't like wavs (or any sound for that matter) that are done
with certain sample rates or types of compression. I.E. you can use 22.05
or 11.025, but there are other very similar sample rates, which are really
non-standard, that the program will not accept. The same for compression:
some types of compression cause a problem, not in playing it, but in
importing into some programs. I'm not sure about Flash. You'd think that
since Flash is a cross-platform product that it would work better this way,
but it seems not.
