I really like the new “applet” mode in svn-909, but I cannot get alac transcoding to work on any of the .m4a or .m4p files in my library. When trying to run alac from the command line it either fails with a segmentation fault or reports the following messages:
$>alac -f foo.wav Tragedy.m4a
(moov) unknown chunk id: iods
(top) unknown chunk id: ►ÇÇÇ
failed to load the QuickTime movie headers
What is the problem here?
Also, not sure if this is a related problem or not, but “applet” mode does not work at all for firefox in Linux – it hangs the browser and forces me to kill the firefox process to regain control.
