What's this with the import again? The program doesn't help. The file is easily played. Audacity version 3.0.2 (release)

If you have "FFmpeg for Audacity" installed, try selecting "FFmpeg compatible files" in the Import filter.
(see: https://manual.audacityteam.org/man/imp ... audio.html)

Thank you, it worked. Though, I don't wish to install this component. So, can't do without it?

FFmpeg didn't help. Still the same issue.

Does the file play in other apps?
What does this site say about the file? https://mediaarea.net/MediaInfoOnline

You should move the line on the top of the list. (Edit - Preferences - Extended import) Otherwise, it won't work.
