Yes, you can't just put capsfilter after a filesrc and have things work

You could look at using the audioparse element for this case, that does
what you need (but may require a newer set of plugins).

Your original mail said you wanted to play LPCM files - do you mean the
DVD LPCM format? If so, then that's a little more complex, but there's
already a dvdlpcmdec element you can use.
