Not at all. I noticed this thread got off on the tangent of codec
specifics, but never addressed your core question:
LiveCode can play all of those and more.
Just not specifically using the old audioClip method. That method was
an early attempt to emulate HC's resource-fork-based SND clips, and
never got past using the .au format which was popular way back in the
day on the platform MetaCard was born on, Unix.
Since then audio and video support assumes richer formats of greater
length than are practical with embedded media clips.
Play them as files and you should be fine.
(That is, unless you need to deploy to Linux, where the Player object
started breaking a few years after the turn of the century and has
gotten steadily worse since.)
