Playing m4a FIles in Ubuntu 8.04

Asked by Ted on 2008-06-24

I'm new to Ubuntu having just switched from Windows.

I've been trying to play my m4a files using Banshee, Rhythmbox and Amarok.
None of them recognises my files.
I have installed ubuntu-restricted-extras and gstreamer0.10-plugins-bad

Is there something obvious I'm missing?

You will need to install the packages "faac" and "libfaac0". This can be done via Synaptic or apt-get.

Sorry I wasted your time. The file I was trying was either not a real .m4a or had been corrupted somehow. All is well.
Now to start transferring the .m4ps...

Cheers
