    Will have to play about with it see if we can get a hand full of sources to test with, thanks IP

    Before Media Player 12 there wasn't native support for these files, so I'm not sure if you'll find codecs for these formats on all PC's.

    Can AMS Audio Library play M4B/M4A formats

    As the titles says can the AMS Audio functions play these formats without adding more codecs two the end users computer and will it be able to read the parts of the M4B format.

    Reason I ask is I started to work on a new app like my old book app what will using the PD source for some audio books and this format includes parts or chapters.
Working...
