Foobar and iTunes

Hey all,
I have a question about using Foobar2000 to play the few songs that I have downloaded through the iTunes service. They are protected .m4p files (MPEG-4), but I have also used the hymn program to remove the protection and now have .m4a files. Is there some way to play these on Foobar2000? I have the special install, and I get the error message that says this:

INFO (CORE) : startup time: 282 ms
INFO (CORE) : opening file for playback :
INFO (CORE) : location: "file://C:\Documents and Settings\pnagel\My Documents\My Music\iTunes\Andy Griggs - She Thinks She Needs Me.m4a" (0)
ERROR (foo_input_std) : Scalefactor out of range
ERROR (foo_input_std) : MP4: decode error.

Thanks for any help in advance.

-Phil

Re: Foobar and iTunes

Can you please check the size of foo_input_std.dll in foobar2000/components folder? If it's not 541KB, try redownloading the special installer from the official page or get the one on Case's page.

Re: Foobar and iTunes

where did you get protected m4 files?
all the ones i Dled you could convert to mp3/wav/aiff no prob

can't really answer your question but i know a way around it if worse comes to worse
burn them to a disc and rerip them however you want, of course a Rw would work good because i assume you don't really want them on disc since you asked about playing them in another audio program

The .m4p files that I got were the ones I downloaded from the iTunes service. When I right-click on the song in iTunes and click "Convert to WAV," it tells me "Protected content cannot be converted."
