MP4a Player

I have just made a dual boot comp. with what I believe to be Fedora 7, and I have been trying to play mp4as with the default music players. None of them seem to work. Got any ideas?

Regards

enable the required third-party repo and install the needed codecs. There are plenty of tutorials in the forum as this is one of the most common questions asked. Let me give you a starting place:

Can I also direct you to this thread where one of the members (DangerMouse) has created a script to make installing codecs easier. I believe he's looking for guinea pigs

Embrace it I don't know anything about scripts but I was just looking through it and it seems pretty safe and installs a lot of basic, useful stuff including Java, which can be daunting for a newbie!

get FireWing1's audio files converter: http://www.diffingo.com/content/view/13/47/lang,en/
It can convert m4a to other audio formats; convert the .m4a files to another format like mp3 or wav that Rhythmbox can play.
m4p, mp4a, etc. are DRM'd audio files. That means, even after you get your audio/media player(s) to play mp3's OK, those copy protected formats still won't play. I have not yet personally checked out the link above, but you might try there for help.
