Dear all,

I am trying to play some audio files with the CLI example on this site:


I am on windows and it is giving error while reading the file. I specified
the following path:

$ python cliplayer.py C:\\voice.mp3

0:00:00.125000000  3788   009DA010 ERROR                basesrc
gstbasesrc.c:2834:gst_base_src_activate_pull:<source> Failed to start in
pull mode
Error: Could not open resource for reading.
gst_gio_src_get_stream ():
Could not open location file:///C:/file:/C:/voice.mp3 for reading: Error
opening file: Invalid argument

How should I specify the file path on windows??

Also, is there anything special I need to do in this line of code?

self.player.set_property("uri", "file://" + filepath)

Thank you!
