    Haali splitter

    One of those embarassing questions but it is a bit of a mystery to me.

    Jezzarette 1 was given an Ipod Nano by Father Christmas this year and has been merrily downloading some songs from ITunes, I am rather pleased (but keeping it quiet) that she has good taste in music such that I decided to back up some of her tracks to my hard drive.

    I happened to note that the file format is m4a and the only way to play them is to get ITunes or various codecs. I decided just for the sheer hell of it to change the file extension to MP3 and was rather pleased when MP11 started to play it <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15> but now note that I have a new icon in my Quick Tray for Haali Media Splitter 29/03/2008 (freeware)

    There are various comments about this software and for the life of me do I know where it came from, anybody had experience of this software as it cannot be removed easily? See here Haali Media Splitter

    Are you certain that renaming the file was all you did? Neither iTunes, WinAmp, or MP11 will play a file simply renamed form M4A to MP3 on my machine. You don't have any additional codecs installed in MP11?

    I use Switch to convert M4A to MP3, search for it in this Forum. I would get rid of Haali.

    Hi John

    I have found the culprit, it was from K-Lite Codec pack, as part of its collection of codecs it has Haali Splitter. I simply uninstalled the K-Lite Codec pack and then checked the registry, all gone.

    Did you install the K-Lite Codecs in MP11? Does MP11 now still play renamed M4As?

    In order of your questions:

    Did you install the K-Lite Codecs in MP11? No

    Does MP11 now still play renamed M4As? It comes up with a message box stating that it does not recognise the headers and asks if you want to play it any way...this was when Haali Splitter gets to work.

    As an aside, I have just loaded Media Player Classic on my MojoPac and it runs the renamed file without any issues <img src=/S/shrug.gif border=0 alt=shrug width=39 height=15>

    <img src=/S/scratch.gif border=0 alt=scratch width=25 height=29> MP11 tells me it's an unrecognized file format and refuses to play M4Ps renamed to MP3s. (Not a significant problem - see the thread on Switch audio converter in this Forum.)
