    Hi all,

    as the subject states, i'm searching a profile for the mplayer to play audio/mp4 m4a lossless files, or some other solution to play these files, tried many thinks but nothing seems to work :(

    If you're looking for a transcoding profile, I've discovered that MPlayer can't do audio only transcoding. It seems to always want a video stream as well.

    Are the m4a files Apple Lossless (ALAC) by any chance? If they are, you might be able to use the following FFmpeg audio transcoding profile that I use with my PS3. I'm not certain if it will work since I don't have any m4a files to test with.

          <profile name="audio2pcm" enabled="yes" type="external">
            <agent command="ffmpeg" arguments="-i %in -acodec pcm_s16be -ab 192k -ar 44100 -ac 2 -f s16be -y %out"/>
            <buffer size="1048576" chunk-size="131072" fill-size="262144"/>
