if you bought them from the iTunes music store, then they are. I thought they
were .m4p, but the main this is if you bought it. There are also apple
lossless songs which may not work with faad2.

kdf,

The tunes were not bought from iTunes. As far as I know they were ripped using iTunes on a Mac.

This is what faad has to say about the file:
