My program was working fine relating to FFMpeg until about a week ago. Now it will not import m4a files and says it cannot locate the ffmpeg file. I browse to the file, select it, click OK, then try to import the ffmpeg file and it still says the same thing.
The only way I’ve found to make it work at all is to browse to the ffmpeg file, select it, choose OK, then save my project and close Audacity.
When I reopen Audacity I am able to import m4a files. But I’ve not found this to be a permanent solution. Next time I open the program, it may work and it may not - and I have to do the same thing again.
I have updated to the most recent version and am still having this problem. It cannot find the .dll file needed. I browse to it, select it, say “OK” and it still won’t import m4a files (for example). Any ideas?
