    Cool playing m4a files


    Try as I might I can't seem to find an easy way to play m4a files in linux.

    I'm sure I'm just not looking in the right places but if someone could just point me to a player or some codecs or something that could do this it would be much appreciated!

    Suse 10.1 ?

    You would probably need a .m4a decoder :

    Other multimedia formats :

    If you want to add the packman repository so you can install them from YAST :
