Evernote will not play embedded sound files

Trying to get evernote to work fully using PlayOnLinux. I am on an ASUS laptop, U46E, with a core i7 processor. I have installed openSUSE 12.2 and am able to play regular sound files in the linux environment with out any problem, either Amarok, or whatever is necessary. Video works as well.

I am running Evernote 4.5.8 using PlayOnLinux version 4.1.8, with an embedded wine installation version 1.4 inside POL, which was necessary to get the networking to work.

When I copy a sound file to a note in Evernote, and then click on it to play, there is no sound. The activity log gives this error:

20:47:19 [12] Could not start audio playback: cannot play file exception, file: C:\\users\\george\\Temp\\enaudio\\111021_006 taliyasi.mp3

The path to that file from outside the wine environment is

/home/george/.PlayOnLinux/wineprefix/Evernote/drive_c/users/george/Temp/enaudio/111021_006 taliyasi.mp3

Also, when I right click on that embedded file and hit "open with", on my windows machine (virtual box) it gives me a list of media options to play it with, like windows media player. In the wine version, the list is unpopulated.

The command line does not give any clues.

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance,

I finally got it to play, though not as I would like. I installed windows VLC in the same installation with evernote, and now when I click on the sound file it brings it up in windows VLC.
