ExtensionSmallImg What is .m4b file?

M4B is a file extension for an MPEG-4 part 14 audio layer audio book container file format used by iTunes. An M4B file is very similar to an M4A file but specified for audio books. The M4B extension is used by audiobooks downloaded from the Apple iTunes store. These audiobooks can be copy-protected using Apple's FairPlay DRM, which means they can be played only on authorized computers or iPods. This format is also known as Apple Lossless or ALE. It is a new codec designed to provide lossless encoding in less storage space. Unlike their M4A counterparts, M4B files are M4A files that also support metadata for bookmarking by supported audio players and so they are frequently used for audio books and podcasts.
