What is a .M4A file?

m4a file icon

M4A files are audio files saved in the MPEG-4 multimedia container format, which is also used by .MP4 video files. However, M4A files only store audio data that is encoded with either the Advanced Audio Coding (AAC) codec or the Apple Lossless Audio Codec (ALAC). The files are typically used for saving songs but may also be used for other types of audio content, such as audiobooks and podcasts.

You may acquire M4A files in various ways, including downloading audio from the Internet, ripping music from a CD, or receiving audio recordings from friends, family members, or co-workers. You can use File Viewer Plus to play your M4A files and convert the audio to the MPEG-3 (.MP3) format and various bitrates and frequencies.
