Hello,

has anyone managed to play m4b (audiobooks in unprotected AAC, great for
use with iTunes/iPod) files with SlimServer/Squeezebox.

I've tried enabling "Apple AAC" in "Server Settings > File Types" but
the Squeezebox just displays "Problem: Can't open file for ..." instead
of playing the file. (The file is _unprotected_, I ripped it myself!)

Does anybody has an idea what's amiss?

Alexander.

I haven't seen any files like this before. Support shouldn't be hard.
Where can I get a sample file?
