View Full Version : Click at start of m4a files on SB3

2006-08-19, 10:11
I've been using my two SB3s happily now for about a month playing my existing mp3 collection and newly ripped to FLAC versions of my CD collection from a ReadyNAS NV.

Today though I added a CD (folder) from my itunes folder that had been ripped and encoded using itunes with the default settings, i.e. aac (m4a) files.

When I start playing any of the tracks I get a audible click at the start.

Also I can't fast forward of rewind the tracks.

Any ideas what the problem is?

No idea about the clicks, but this part is expected - you can't fast forward or rewind when you're using a file format that is being transcoded.

The Squeezebox doesn't have a native AAC decoder, it is transcoded to AIFF, FLAC or MP3 depending on what you've set in Server Settings - File Types.
