Thanks to you both for the feedback.
I'm pretty sure I've made .m4a audio on Linux that has then played back in iTunes (or at least Quicktime) on my Mac. But I was probably converting flaac to wav to aac using /usr/bin/flac from <http://flac.sourceforge.net>.
The Nintendo sample appears to have been made with Apple software (I took a glance at it earlier, but can't remember now whether it was Quicktime or iTunes).
But Apple aren't so obnoxious that they *deliberately* won't play audio produced by other applications; it's surely possible for get_iplayer to get this right.
