Hi folks,

I usually run GiP on Windows, but after copying my options file to Linux 
my radio downloads don't have any .m4a extensions.  My options file is 
as follows:

attempts 3
fileprefix <longname>< - episode> (<pid> <version>)
force true
modes dafhigh, hafhigh, dafstd, hafstd, hlsaacstd, dafmed, hafmed, 
daflow, haflow, hlsaaclow
nocopyright true
outputradio /home/jscholes/radio
overwrite true
whitespace true

Any ideas?
