Cannot import m4a on Rasberry Pi?
« on: April 17, 2015, 11:51:58 am »

Is there some setting I'm missing? Installed JRiver on Rasberry Pi 2 (Noobs software) and it won't import any M4a files.

I followed the instructions here:  http://yabb.jriver.com/interact/index.php?topic=95578.0

Everything works great....just no M4a (which are about 10,000 of my 15,000 files!)

Just a follow up -- the files play fine using VLC on the Pi.

Did you setup auto-import? And did you specify it imports .m4a (ALAC Audio) files?

Thanks.

Yes, I did. All the boxes are checked in the auto-imports formats -- including ALAC.

It's driving me crazy....I have everything working on the Pi...just can't read the format all my files are in!

You could convert a few to FLAC or another lossless codec.

That's what I'm doing....converting all 10,000 files to FLAC, since that works fine.

Still, it's odd.

Just checked it.
ALAC is broken on MC Linux arm.

Can anyone confirm if ALAC playback is now fixed on MC Linux arm?

I'll reply to myself here, I'm sharing a library full of M4As from my PC to PI and they all play fine.

Are any of them ALAC?

Almost all of them. The only thing I see that is different is that I am sharing a library vs. directly importing them.
