    Will give it a go out of curisoty. Wonder if you can navigate an ISO or do you have to extract it "a la UNEEK" stylee?

    I'm wondering if it can also extract compressed/encrypted data.
    if the wii format is compressed with u8, how will the program understand that it's a music file and not something else if the header is not clearly written? :/

    You will more likely need to extract the file first (uneek, wiiscrubber, etc.) as the iso is encrypted and you need the key.bin to analyze the content.

    I would like the music from Little king Story (no official OST available, Cing © had to close before that. only 3 musics are officially available in wav format).
    maybe there's some fan made OST/extracted sound.

    I don't have time to test it with anything, so tell me if anything works, or you can access the disc.

    Seriously, that's all what you need. Just check out the readme to see which sound formats are supported. Obviously, there are some games that do have content compression/encryption (like Sonic Colors, which has a big CPK file that contains all the game data, except for the cinemas), so you need to use other tools in order to obtain the sound files and transcode them to WAV using VGMStream.

    And yes, you have to use WiiScrubber/Trucha Signer or any similar program.
