Playing m4a (Apple AAC) files on JuK...

The subject line says it all. I'd like to play m4a files on JuK. Anyone have any idea how to do that?

The m4a files are the compressed music files distributed by Apple via its iTunes Music Store. Unlike the m4p files, the m4a files are not DRM'd, which means they can be played on devices other than iTunes/iPod. In fact, I can play them without any problem using AmaroK and Kaffeine. All you have to have is the mp4v2 library.

However, I can't get JuK to recognize the m4a files.

I like JuK because it's simple and lightweight. AmaroK is an overkill for me - it's got way too many features than necessary. Kaffeine isn't too much better in that regard.

So... if anyone can help me out on this, I'd much appreciate it!
