No audio - only scratch

I flashed my device the following website
I select Muse and the flashing process worked well. After connecting to my WiFi I start adding the device to Home Assistant.
All seems fine but if I try to play an audio wav file there is only a scratchy noise.
If I select the muse device in Home Assistant I got the following information:
Firmware: 2022.8.3 (Sep 7 2022, 01:29:31)
Hardware: 1.0
In the log I see the following:

Any ideas?
Maybe an other version to flash?

Hi! first when you received the device and turn it on, was it working? Just to put aside any hardware issue


the device is working fine.

After a lot of testing I figured out that it only happened when the Uri to file to play is not from inside your local network.

As you can see in the log of the original post, it was send via

If it’s send in your local network all works as expected.

ok i understand. So I’m afraid I can’t help you with that one, you should check the HA forums.
