Can't import .dsf track with audacity 3.0.2 and FFmpeg dylib 55

Hi All,

As for the title no way to import a .dsf file with Audacity 3.0.2, the FFmpeg library is correctly installed and detected.

Any idea?

Thanks in advance!

Have you selected "FFmpeg-compatible files" in the "File type:" dropdown menu?

You may need to click the "Options" button to expose the File type dropdown.

I'm having the same issue.

macOS 11.6 Intel
Audacity 3.0.4
FFmpeg is recognized by Audacity.

If I attempt to open a .dsf file, I get an error message.
If I use the suggested workaround of browsing and attempting to parse with FFmpeg-compatible files as the file type, the .dsf files are greyed out and can't be selected.

As far as I'm aware, .dsf files are not yet supported, and you will need to convert them to a supported format (such as WAV) in another app before you can use the audio in Audacity.

This issue may be fixed in Audacity 3.1 when it is released.
