    Hi


    Would it be possible to get MPTagThat to recognize m4b files. The m4b container is just a renamed m4a, that makes it possible for iPods and other to recognize the file a an audiobook.

    I am currently working on an update for MPTagThat, which will include it.
    However you would need the same binary in MP, in order for m4b to be recognized.
    And we are in feature freeze for 1.6. I can create a custom build for MP 1.6 for you.

    I have just realised, that the Tagreader in MP would be able to read m4b files.
    you just need to add "m4b" to the valid music extensions inside MP config

    grab a build for MPTT from here: http://mediaportal.wahrmann.com/MPTagThat_setup.zip

    let me know who it works for you
