A podcast about all things Macintosh. For Mac geeks, by Mac geeks. A special episode of the Maccast recorded live at the Mac Computer Expo 2011 in Petaluma, California where I moderated the keynote presentation. This year we continued on last years theme and presented “iFuture Continued”. I was joined by Jason Snell (Macworld), David Sparks (Mac Power Users), Jean MacDonald (Smile), and Jeff Gamet (Mac Observer) where we attempted once again to predict what the future of Apple may be.

    Is this when you attempt to download or play them directly from iTunes on the device? If so, it’s a bug in iOS and the iPod/Music player when accessing AC files directly through iTunes servers. What version of iOS are you running? The work around is to download from iTunes on your Mac or PC and sync it to your device (this pulls the SAME exact source file BTW). It sucks, but I’ve been round and round with Apple on this and they don’t seem to want to fix it. The real annoyance is that the issue only is with AAC audio files which is the format that supports the enhancing, an APPLE feature. If I’d just delivered an MP3 file it would be fine, but Maccast folks want the chapters and enhanced features Apple, iTunes, and iOS provide. I do too. Please send feedback to Apple. and ask them to fix this.
