FS#12957 - AAC file is detected as ALAC

The current build as well as 3.13 report and then fail:

parsing /kns017-maertyrer-gegen-copyright.m4a failed (format: ALAC)

However, foobar reports:

Codec profile : AAC SBR

Which is likely correct given that the bitrate is far too low to be ALAC.

Any invalid m4a file will be logged as failed ALAC file. Most likely caused by not recognized ftyp chunk in metadata. Suggested fix:


Available keyboard shortcuts
