Today I tried to load an m4a audio file with Audacity for further editing, but surprisingly the file could not be loaded!
This is the error message I got:
- Code: Select all
"/home/vasmakk/music.m4a" is an Advanced Audio Coding file. Audacity cannot open this type of file. You need to convert it to a supported audio format, such as WAV or AIFF.
This is a codec issue. In earlier versions of LM I had to install ffmpeg and everything worked just fine.
But in LM 17 Qianna ffmpeg is missing! Any suggestions or alternatives?
I want to use Audacity and no other software as I find it very handy...
