Rhythmbox and M4A


I have ripped a bunch of cds on my window box using the default iTunes format, M4A.
Unfortunatly, from my linux box through samba, those files are not even listed under Rhythmbox. It looks like the format is not recognised... Is there anything I can do to have them recognised? A plugin to download or something?
Thanks for your help.

afaik Rhythmbox doesn't support atm

I'm having to use mplayer tro play these files at the moment. I have seen a patch for xmms for example but nothing perminant (http://beepmp.sourceforge.net/xmms-m...3-beep-3.patch)

Perhaps RhythmBox can be set to index more files *.m*? somehow

Thanks for the answer. I have enquired further on the Dropline forums and there even appear to be a bug in gstreamer regarding AAC support and which is used by Rhythmbox. Can check the thread there:

I think with v0.8.x of both GStreamer and Rhythmbox these issues have been solved in the meantime. The only remaining problem might occur with *.aac files that are not supported yet, because GStreamer doesn't have a file parser for them, only for *.mp4 and *.m4a files.
