There's no conversion needed, but you need the right codec/program associated with the execution of .mp4 files.
Is your desktop mac or PC?
Thus far I've tested only on my PC under Win7, but I also want it to work on Macs.
Macs should play the quicktime format natively. I assume you haven't tested it on a mac desktop yet.
Haven't played around with Windows much, but imagine the codec thing is your issue.
According to this, only windows media player 12 supports MP4/M4A
You can try updating to WMP12, or possibly installing quicktime as well.
What happens when you export the audio file to your desktop and double click to open it? Does it play? What program does it play with?
FM usually uses the default associated program for a file format to play that file. If nothing is associated with .mp4/.m4a, then it will not play anything.
Just discovered the Interactive Media checkbox under the Inspector. After checking that, the sound file created under Go13 on the iPad played normally on the desktop under Pro13.
Thanks for your help.
ah, I figured you had already set that since you said it played on the iPad.
Container fields in fmgo are not interactive so I don't think the checkbox matters in go.
Roy, my mind must already be enjoying the 5pm beer with the weekend so close… Thanks for pointing that out!
Better stock up on beer to prepare for the massive snow storm that is suppose to hit this weekend.
