Questions / MusicBee chapter support (m4a, m4b, ect.)
« on: April 13, 2016, 11:11:04 PM »

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!
