Tim's Simplistic Wave Viewer
A tool that enables you to view the first 1000 samples of any wav file quickly and easily. I wanted a way to quickly view the contents of a wave file without needing to open it in an audio editor or player, which take too much time to open.
TSWV is meant to be called from within your filebrowser, using the right-click menu. For adding TSWV to your right-click menu, you need to install "nautilus actions": sudo apt-get install nautilus-actions (or use synaptic to install nautilus-actions) open nautilus-actions and enter TSWV.py as an action for wav files (if necessary, make TSWV executable) in the 'Parameters' field of the 'Command' tab, enter '%f' (without the quotes) this will send the currently selected filenames to TSVW for opening TSWV should now appear in Nautilus' right-click menu, so you can quickly view the first 1000 samples of a wav file :)
The waveform is displayed in a very simplistic way. It's not meant to be exact, but just to give you an idea of what's in the wave file.
