sox soxio: Failed reading : unknown file type

I began receiving this error in Ubuntu (after upgrading to Hardy 8.04 I think) whenever I tried to use the sox or play commands. Turns out the solution is pretty simple, sox had just lost its available format libraries.

sudo apt-get install libsox-fmt-all

    This fixed my Xubuntu 8.04 error that occured while working with dvd-slideshow.

    Or at least the sox-part of the Error 😉

    Thanks a lot.
