Topic: Opening .M4A Files in Audacity?

I'm having trouble importing an audio file in .M4A format into audacity. I've installed the ffmpeg plugin, but even when I manually select it under Preferences it still doesn't seem to work.

Anybody have any tips? Thanks.

Try this. It's a free audio format converter. A while ago, some of my audio files wouldn't work on my computer because they were MEG format, I think. Anyway, I used this website and converted I into mp3 and it worked. I hope this helps.

Thanks, that worked great! That site's a lot nicer than some of those other shady looking converters out there.
