And it is my coding:

shootSound = new AudioNode(assetManager,"Sounds/Shoot/shot.ogg",DataType.Buffer);
        shootSound.setLooping(false);
        shootSound.setPositional(true);
        shootSound.setVolume(2);
        shootSound.play();
        rootNode.attachChild(shootSound);

What is the problem of this case , is this my coding type wrong or it was the format of audio cannot support by jMonkeyEngine ?
Thanks for all for your reply ! :smiley:

ogg files are supported as long as you have included the ogg dependency.

compile "org.jmonkeyengine:jme3-jogg:3.3.0-alpha5"

Have you checked that the file will play in another player such as VLC?

Looks to me like the file is not a Vorbis file. You may be able to convert it.

Actually we should fail earlier then instead of having a NullPointerException “somewhere”

Yes, the sound can play at VLC.

Thanks for all of you very much, I using FormatFactory to convert it again and jMonkeyEngine can play it well. :upside_down_face:
