M4A Audio Format M4A Converter
M4A files are an extension of the MP4 container format (MPEG-4 or Moving Picture Experts Group-4). Originally developed by Apple as a competing format to MP3, M4As are specifically used to store audio-only material such as podcasts, music, audiobooks and other auditory entertainment. You can open these files using Apple Music, VideoLAN VLC media player, Microsoft Windows Media Player and others.
M4A files are typically encoded with ALAC (Apple Lossless Audio Codec) or AAC (Advanced Audio Coding), compressing the files to produce smaller file sizes that retain high-quality sound. Due to their reduced file sizes, M4A files are a go-to format for sharing and downloading audio content, especially music downloaded from the Apple iTunes Store. You can play M4A files with most popular media players, including Apple Music, Apple Quicktime, Windows Media Player (if you add the K-Lite Codec Pack), Adobe Audition, and VLC.
AAC Audio Format AAC Converter
AAC is one of the most common formats for digital music, in a large part because it is the default format for Apple devices and the iTunes program, as well as some Sony and Nintendo devices. AAC is short for Advanced Audio Coding. It was developed in 1997 and is now an open standard recognised by ISO, the International Organization for Standardization.
Like MP3, the AAC file format uses lossy compression. With both formats there is some loss of audio quality to create smaller file sizes that let users to store and share music more easily. However, with both MP3 and AAC, most listeners cannot hear this loss of quality. AAC also generally produces higher quality sound than MP3. As AAC is a widely used open standard format for digital music, you can play AAC audio tracks with almost all media players, including Apple Music, Windows Media Player, VLC, and Adobe Audition.
