I recently came across the terms m4r and m4a on the internet. I do not know what these are. I this they have something to do with audio. Am I correct? Can you give a brief m4r vs m4a, and explain the difference between the two?
M4r Vs M4a What Is The Difference Between The Two
You are absolutely right. Both of these terms are related to audio. In fact, these are nothing but file extensions that represent different formats of digital audio. Different audio platforms use different encoding and process to create the final audio file. To differentiate these files, we have file extensions corresponding to the process of encoding of the audio file.
The m4r file format is the iTunes Ringtone file. This means that files with an extension m4r are ringtones provided by Apple iTunes. On the other hand, m4a is used for all other kinds of audio except for audiobooks. Mfr is a format strictly for IOS and does not work on Android.
