Yes it does. If you look at the functions "get4Bytes()" and "get2Bytes()"
in the file "liveMedia/WAVAudioFileSource.cpp" (which is where WAV audio
files are read and parsed), you'll see that 4 and 2-byte structures within
WAV files are read as little-endian, regardless of the endianness of the

As it should - because WAV audio files are assumed to be always little endian.
If this is incorrect - i.e., if WAV files can be either little *or*
big-endian, and there's some flag somewhere in the file's header that
indicates this, then let me know.
