Can't play m4a in Windows 10

I have latest PM installed on a Win7 computer and a win10 computer. If I go to radiotunes.com in win7, music plays/stream fine. If i go there under windows 10, I get a red bar across the top that says "

Oops, it appears your browser does not support playback of m4a audio files neccessary to use our service. Please consider trying a different browser for the best playback experience.

Had you tried to see if other applications can play m4a files (Edge, Chrome)?

The reason is that sometimes Pale Moon borrows the codec installed in windows if don't see one installed locally. A codec pack like K-lite can fix that most times.

Gee, perhaps you could do us all a favor and post a list of all the things we should and should not say around here. :wtf:

Were going to get to the point that no one will be willing to help anyone else anymore due to your harsh responses.
Or worse yet. They will simply leave. You were doing really good for a while but now your back to your old ways.

Give it a rest will ya, not every one here likes to have their ass chewed for something as simple as missing your middle int. :thumbdown:

You chase my posts too see what I write and say to others that I am an ignorant and ignore my tips *without quote me so I cannot get the notice*. This is your dirty and coward way to act. For me you are a troll that need to get a life.

I read every new post on the forum that comes in and have done so since 2013.

You're not special.
