I already repaired permissions and re-installed FFmeg before I made my original post.
Still using iTunes 10.7 as I have for quite a while. Apple really screwed things up with 11.0.
What I’m asking Audacity to view are the actual .m4a music files within my iTunes Music folder, in my case they’re all Apple Lossless.
But the real question remains, I’ve used the same procedure hundreds of times with many versions of Audacity up until 2.0.3. I usually do it to check out the differences between the original and remastered version of the same song. It works in 2.0.3 and not in 2.0.4. I’ve tried it on two different Mac computers (iMac and MacBook Pro) running two different versions of OSX (10.6.8 and 10.7.5)
The same version of FFmpeg (0.6.2) is needed for 2.0.4 as 2.0.3.
I can reproduce the “Open with” problem - another user mentioned it to me yesterday. Audacity makes no attempt to import the file according to the log.
I would guess the Modules dialogue which is new to 2.0.4 could be the cause, but Audacity still imports files on “Open with” on Windows and Linux even if the presence of a module makes the dialogue appear. I’ll confirm later if the modules dialogue is the cause.
I assume you are aware you can drag the files into the Audacity window?
2.0.4 is prone to crash when importing files on some machines, so you may be better with 2.0.3 for now in any case.
