Then I guess the file you have named 'sine.wav' isn't actually  a wav
file then. What mime type (if any) does gst-typefind sine.wav report?

If the data is just raw samples that you've made with something like
gst-launch sinesrc ! filesink, you need to tell GStreamer what the
sample format is. You do this using a caps filter that specifies the
exact format.
