Josh N 3 Posted January 19, 2012 Share Posted January 19, 2012 I ran into a problem today with playing back .m4a files within Evernote.When I click the play button, the icon changes to 'paused' but the progress slider does not move and no sound is played. Additionally, the track length is shown as 0:00 after pressing play. The same m4a file plays fine in Mac Evernote.Additionally, every sound file in Evernote thereafter shows the locked pause button where the play button should be. Even if I record an audio note in Evernote, it will not be able to be played back.I discovered a temporary fix: to relocate the Evernote local files to a new, empty folder. This resets the pause buttons to play buttons for all audio files in Evernote. I converted the .m4a files to .mp3, and the .mp3 files play fine, as do .wav files. These are the only formats I've tested.iTunes is my default application for all three file types.Log:Evernote for Windows 184.108.40.20604 (209040) PublicOS: Windows 6.1.7601 Service Pack 1User: [deleted]Memory: 60.3MBCreated: 2012/01/18 22:38:45---Log opened on 2012/01/18 22:36:48 (UTC-8:00)22:36:48  Changed Evernote files location to: D:\Evernote Data22:36:49  Opened database: D:\Evernote Data\Databases\xxx.exb (8.3MB Fixed)22:37:28  Reloaded external editor for resource 527/0, file"D:\Evernote Data\Databases\Attachments\01.16.2012 613p.m4a"22:37:28  External file "D:\Evernote Data\Databases\Attachments\01.16.2012 613p.m4a", resource 527/0, is unchanged22:37:39  Started audio playback, file: C:\Users\xxx\AppData\Local\Temp\enaudio\Evernote 20120118 22.28.23.wav22:37:43  Stopped audio playback, file: C:\Users\xxx\AppData\Local\Temp\enaudio\Evernote 20120118 22.28.23.wav22:37:48  Could not start audio playback: cannot play file exception, file: C:\Users\xxx\AppData\Local\Temp\enaudio\01.16.2012 613p.m4a===No log information is produced after pressing the locked pause button.This guy sounds like he has the same problem: http://discussion.evernote.com/topic/21324-audio-note-playback-problem/ Link to comment
