    WMP & *.m4a Files (WMP 11 / Vista Ultimate)

    Is there any hope that MS will offer a plugin that will allow WMP to work with m4a files like any of the others it manges so well? I have aac files in my libraryt that I would like to keep as is, and I am stunned that WMP will not play or even recognize them .......

    Microsoft probably won't, but there are third-party codecs such as 3ivx (not free).

    Once again, thank you for your assistance. I did purchase the plugin from 3ivxm, and it did work perfectly. In the event you do have some knowledge about iTunes, I am trying to find a script file that will tune up itunes so that it can disp;ay the path name in the library list ....... this is such a basic need, I cannot believe that it is not already part of the itunes software ...... if you have a suggestion for a software package that will provide the correct functionality and release me from itunes bondage, this would be even better ...... I maintain 3 ipods and it will be some time before they are replaced ..... so I am stuck with itunes or am i??

    I can't help you with that (I don't use ITunes). It might be better to ask this question in our Other Software Applications forum, since it has nothing to do with Windows Vista.

    Download and install K-Lite Codec Pack - it is <img src=/S/free.gif border=0 alt=free width=30 height=15>

    Choose "Save" option (I suggest to download the latest full version from the bottom of the list), right-click the downloaded file and from pop-up menu select "Run as Administrator".

    Good luck!
