Post your question to a community of 469,616 developers. It's quick & easy.

This is INSANE. MediaElement and .m4a files.

I just want to play some m4a files I have. Some, are DRM-locked down
crap that I got from iTunes (never again will I buy DRM music).

But, I have some .m4a files that are DRM free (from Amazon). They
play just fine in Windows Media Player 11 and even my Sony PSP.

I have created a MediaElement control in a WPF app and when I put the
source as a mp3 file, it works. But when I switch to a m4a file, I
get nothing.

WTF?

What will it take to play these files? And no, I don't want to
convert.

Is MediaElement the way to go? I would like to make a simply media
player that is generic.

Thanks

Never mind. I found the answer. The MediaElement does not support
m4a. It only supports WMA, WMV, AVI, etc. And about the only audio
format is mp3.

Well, there goes that idea.
