I'm not sure if you recorded the SSTV audio directly on to your computer from the radio or made a recording on a digital recorder to then transfer to the computer. I downloaded MMSSTV and although there are files you can use to test it, it wasn't clear (to me!) how to get the software to read the test audio files on your computer.
When ARISSat was being tested from the ISS, I recorded the SSTV audio during a pass using a small digital recorder with a cable( with 3.5mm jack on each end) connecting the radio to the microphone socket on the recorder. After the pass I went back inside and started up MMSSTV and then just plugged one end of same cable into the earpiece socket on the recorder and the other into the microphone socket on my computer. I didn't adjust any input levels. I pushed play on the recorder and MMSSTV started decoding and displaying the image immediately.
It seems like the software is either set for a mic or line input as a default and it definitely would be nice to how to switch it so that you can decode audio files on your computer.
