Convert M4B to M4A online, for free.
MPEG-4 Audio Layer (M4B) is the file format that stores audiobooks and podcasts, primarily those that are available on iTunes. The cool thing about this file format is that, unlike MPEG-Audio Layer III (MP3), M4B can store digital bookmarks. This feature allows readers to pause and resume later, just like a physical bookmark in a printed book!
Developed by: Apple Inc.
Initial Release: 1999
MPEG 4 Audio (M4A) compresses and encodes audio files by using one of two coder-decoder algorithms: Advanced Audio Coding (AAC) or Apple Lossless Audio Codec (ALAC). M4A files are smaller in size while simultaneously better in quality than MP3 files, with which it shares the most similarities, in comparison to all other audio file formats.
M4A files open in most well-known, audio-playback programs, including iTunes, QuickTime, and Windows Media Player. For Apple users, iTunes is the default program to open M4A files. For Windows users, the default program is Windows Media Player. Users can also preview M4A files by highlighting the file and pressing the spacebar.
Initial Release: 2001
