Title

Container field cannot play .m4a

Post

I have a IPhone 4s with the new Filemaker Go on it. My Windows XP laptop has the Filemaker Pro 12.

My goal is to use the IPhone to send data to a database form on the computer. I've designed a form on the computer which includes a container field to hold audio recording. In the Inspector settings for that audio container field I have it set to be Interactive.

When I share the database from my laptop to the IPhone all works fine and I'm able to see the computer form and record on the IPhone into the audio container field.I can play back the recording on the IPhone fine.

However, when I go to play the audio in the field on the laptop I get a message ..

"The file you are attempting to play has an extension (.m4a) that does not match the file format. Playing the file may result in unexpected behavior". So I cannot play back the audio recording in the container field on the form.

I have the lastest version of Quicktime (free version) on the laptop.

I hope I don't have to export that container field audio ever time I want to move though records.

Please help.

Thanks ... John
