Apologies if this is an obvious one but I'm damned if I can find mention of it anywhere... I'm having trouble playing AAC (M4A) files on my original SliMP3 box with SlimServer 6 -- audio just comes through as staccato clicks. Am I missing something here..?

What OS are you running Slimserver on? I am playing .m4a's to my Slimp3s
on my Fedora Linux system successfully with both 6.0.1 and 6.1. Is
this a problem only with your Slimp3 and you are successfully playing
m4a's on an SB1 or SB?

I'm running SlimServer on a Win2K Server box. It's definitely a SliMP3/M4a problem -- the .M4A files play in iTunes and the SliMP3 plays MP3s with no problems. I've since installed QuickTime on the server PC (as instructed by the AAC entry in the Wiki), and now I just get silent playback rather than clicking.

All three AAC formats are enabled in File Types (AIFF, Flac & MP3). Running SlimServer from the command line gives a constant stream of errors, the pertinent section of which appears to be:

Any clues in there..?

Edit: Oh and I don't have an SB to test this on, unfortunately...

Have you installed LAME? See
http://www.slimdevices.com/su_faq.html#troubleshooting-aacwireless.

Sorry, I see from your log that you do have LAME installed. QuickTime
error -3000 (coming from mov123.exe) is errBadComponent. Perhaps you
have to install a newer version of QuickTime? Also, I'm assuming that
the .m4a files do not have any DRM.

QuickTime is the latest version and the AAC files are DRM-free... :(

Are you using Windows 2003 Server? If so, take a look at
http://bugs.slimdevices.com/show_bug.cgi?id=805. Let me know if the
suggestion there - using an older version of mov123.exe - works for you.

Nope, no BSOD here (I'm on Windows 200 Server). I still might try an older version of Mov123 though, just in case.

Edit: Nope, same problem.

Have you installed Quicktime using the "Full Install" method? I had
the same problem as you when I once thought using a "Minimum Install"
Quicktime should be enough ...
