M4R Audio Format M4R Converter
An M4R is often referred to as an iPhone ringtone file. Developed by Apple, an M4R file is similar to an M4A file with the main difference being that an M4R file can only be 30 seconds in length and they are typically converted using iTunes itself. The way they work is a user selects a song they from their iTunes library that they want as a ringtone and they saved it as an M4R file and reimport back into iTunes giving them their own custom ringtone.
To avoid piracy M4R files can only created using music that has been purchased from iTunes. M4R files can be played by iTunes and on all Apple devices, and can also be played via the VLC media player but to play an M4R file using a program that isn’t Apple based would mean a user has created the file using software that is not linked with Apple and therefore do not include copyright protection.
M4A Audio Format M4A Converter
An M4A file format is also called an MPEG-4 audio file, and is an audio file saved in the MPEG-4 standard. It was developed by Apple, largely as a result of the popularity of the MP3 file. An M4A file is the go-to audio format for compressed audio, due to the creation and popularity of iTunes.
M4A files tend to be encoded using an AAC codec and are small in size because they have been compressed - often providing a smaller file-size footprint than an MP3 file format, while mirroring, if not improving, the quality of an MP3 file. As more and more music was consumed on the go via devices such as iPods and smartphones, the need for small file sizes became greater, which is why an M4A file has grown in popularity and importance.
One downside of an M4A file, especially when compared to an MP3 format, is that it can only be opened by iTunes or Windows Media Player version 12 and later. By comparison, an MP3 file is universally supported.
