Questions / Re: MusicBee chapter support (m4a, m4b, ect.)
« on: April 14, 2016, 11:14:33 AM »
Lovely! Thanks for the quick reply. I have uploaded two files:

The first zip-file ( contains only the audio and a text document with the metadata.

The second zip-file ( contains everything needed to create the audio file. This includes the original mp4-file, converters, and the Python script used (However, MP4Box needs to be installed in order to actually use the script).

Further I'd like to request that when playing an m4a-file with chapters then the chapter time-stamps should be shown on the player control 'timebar' (the bar the displays how much of a song has been played). This automatically happens when playing the file in VLC.

Questions / MusicBee chapter support (m4a, m4b, ect.)

I have been using MusicBee for year and never had any issues (that I couldn't readily fix). That is, until I tried getting MusicBee to recognize chapters enbedded in m4a metadata.

There are three things I'd like to accomplish:

1) When playing a track with chapters (or bookmarks) then display the current chapter name in the 'Track Details' panel.

2) Being able to skip to next chapter. Preferably by using a hotkey.

3) Display each chapter as a separate song in the Library.

All the above features are supported by a range of other music players (that in many other ways are inferior to MB) . In more detail I'm downloading EDM Livesets for offline use. As there is no reason to play an mp4-file (video) everytime I listen to a song I've written a Python script to convert the mp4 files to m4a. I've also added functionality for the script to download tracklists and convert these to chapters, which then are added to the metadata of the final m4a file.

The chapters of the m4a file is recognized in VLC, iTunes, and AIMP, but sadly not in MusicBee. Any suggestions on how to approach this problem is appreciated!
