Codecs for m4a - tardich - 2011-03-15


I have many m4a files (AAC files, finally) that were created via iTunes (my own CD collection). XBMC on Linux can't play them. On the log file, I'm getting:

INFO: ffmpeg[CF531800]: encoder : iTunes v7.0.2.16, QuickTime 7.1.3
INFO: ffmpeg[CF531800]: Duration: 00:04:36.15, start: 0.000000, bitrate: 129 kb/s
INFO: ffmpeg[CF531800]: Stream #0.0(und): Audio: mp4a / 0x6134706D, 0 channels, 128 kb/s
DEBUG: FactoryCodec - Audio: FFmpeg - Opening

DEBUG: FactoryCodec - Audio: FFmpeg - Failed
ERROR: Init: Could not create audio codec
ERROR: CAudioDecoder: Unable to Init Codec while loading file [****].m4a

What's missing, exactly? I'm assuming there's a codec missing somewhere, but where do I get it, and where do I put it?

The same file is worrking correctly on XBMC under Windows.
