Among other lossy codecs, FFmpeg supports muxing 
adpcm_ima_wav and at least a handful other adpcm 
codecs including G726 and G723, it supports muxing 
mp2, mp3, aac, wma1, wma2, atrac3 (I hope), amr 
and ac-3 in wav. I am proud that muxing e-ac-3 is 
also supported. I believe it would be possible to 
also support atrac3+ but I would need somebody who 
is able to test (WMP without ffdshow that plays 
such files).
