Please be aware that much of the software linked to or mentioned on this forum is niche and therefore infrequently downloaded. Lots of anti-virus scanners and so-called malware detectors like to flag infrequently downloaded software as bad until it is either downloaded enough times, or its developer actually bothers with getting each individual release allow listed by every single AV vendor. You can do many people a great favor when encountering such a "problem" example by submitting them to your AV vendor for examination. For almost everything on this forum, it is a false positive.

Apple MPEG-4 Audio will not stream Analog

I have a bunch of these files that were ripped in iTunes from CD's.

Recently started streaming FLAC files using my OPPO BDP 103D analog direct, no processing by my AVP.

I am getting full HD audio with these.

However, when I stream the Apple files analog using same input they sound horrific, cut-outs, stammering audio, not listenable.

So I don't understand that.  If I stream them via HDMI using the process of the AVP they sound OK.

Can someone explain why this might happen.

And is there a batch Apple MP4 to FLAC file converter?

I don't know what the source of the problem is but for mass conversion I can really recommend XLD. From that page it looks like it's just command line but it has a useful GUI as well. What I often do is get it to transcode a bunch of files and while transcoding (usually from FLAC to aac in my case) I just drag more file to the queue and it will just add them at the end.

Here is its entry in the HA wiki.
