I've done some tests on  both Windows 10 and Vista using LC 8.1 but m4a 
files still do not play when setting the filename of a player. They do 
play using WMP. This is becoming an urgent issue for my client and I 
need to get it working quickly. Does anyone know what we need to 
install, or how to get this working?

Is anyone else able to play .m4a files on Windows using the new player
