Has the iTunes AAC encoder changed recently?

Has anyone been able to figure out how to get files encoded with Quicktime (using the new VBR mode) to go from being MOVs to M4As? I encoded in OS X, the tried simply changing the extensions (in Windows, mind you), but foobar doesn't recognise them as playable media files.


Try to convert the .mov to mpeg4, and for audio select passthrough.

Xlossless decoder will convert lossless files to true VBR format using quicktime and coreaudio. It's a GUI app.

Good GRAVY! Works like a charm!

(Busemann: Thanks for the tip too!)

Max should also support the new VBR mode soon, but for now I'm ripping to FLAC and converting to AAC with XLD

Sounds like it might be a little while yet from what Max's developer says.
