There’s a gem called win32-sound that’s suitable for playing wav files.
I assume this uses the win32 API function for playing wav files, so it
should work on vista. If you require anything more complex, you could
try the Ruby SDL bindings but win32-sound looks fine for playing simple
wav files.

Thank you very much and it works quite well.

I need to play several short audio files and have two more questions:
1) Is it possible to set up the time interval between each file?
2) I want to print out title for each file. What I find is that it
plays all the files then print all the file name or either way. Can
it play 1st file followed by the file name, then 2nd file by the file
name…?
