M4B AudioBook Support

Recommended Posts

As far as I know these are just M4A audio with chapters included, but they need to be renamed to M4A to play at all (without chapter support).

Would it be possible to support these files by default? Even without the chapter support would be useful as we wouldn't have to rename the files.

So all you really need is for the scanner to look for m4b extensions, just to avoid renaming the files?


Yeah, they play fine when renamed but are ignored by default if they have the .m4b extension.

Of course it would be ideal if Max could include the chapter splitting from the .m4b format, one of the only (non-apple) programs I've seen that splits those files is the desktop version of foobar2000.
