What is M4A?
M4A stands for MPEG 4 Audio. Since MPEG-4 Part 14 is a container format, MPEG-4
files may contain any number of audio, video, and even subtitle streams, making
it impossible to determine the type of streams in an MPEG-4 file based on its
filename extension alone. In response, Apple Inc. started using and popularizing
the .m4a file extension. Software capable of audio/video playback should recognize
files with either .m4a or .mp4 file extensions, as would be expected, as there
are no file format differences between the two. Most software capable of creating
MPEG-4 audio will allow the user to choose the filename extension of the created
Because of its exceptional performance and quality, Advanced Audio Coding (AAC)
is at the core of the MPEG-4, 3GPP and 3GPP2 specifications and is the audio codec
of choice for Internet, wireless and digital broadcast arenas. AAC provides audio
encoding that compresses much more efficiently than older formats, such as MP3,
yet delivers quality rivaling that of uncompressed CD audio.
What is ALAC?
Apple Lossless (also known as Apple Lossless Encoder, ALE,
or Apple Lossless Audio Codec, ALAC) is an audio codec developed by Apple
Inc. for lossless data compression of digital music.
Apple Lossless data is stored within an MP4 container with the filename extension
.m4a. It is not a variant of AAC, but uses linear prediction similar to other
lossless codecs such as FLAC and Shorten. iPod players with a dock connector (not
the Shuffle) and recent firmware can play Apple Lossless-encoded files. It does
not utilize any digital rights management (DRM) scheme, but by the nature of the
container, it is thought that DRM can be applied to ALAC much the same way it
can with other files in QuickTime containers.
