I think my problem of .m4a files without seek tables stems from the
period when, after an update, I didn't have AtomicParsley (AP) correctly
Is it possible for me now to create seek information using AP?
Many of the files are long and since I do not need sound editing
precision when choosing a start point, is it possible to choose the
interval between data points to keep the seek data volume small?
Please could somebody help me here?
