There have been serious security issues reported with QuickTime for Windows, and Apple recently announced that it would no longer be supporting QuickTime in future on the Windows platform, nor would it be addressing such security concerns. In the light of this, I have changed Chapter Master so that it no longer requires QuickTime, and instead uses Windows Media Player to play back audio files. Note that this requires Windows 7 or higher, as earlier versions of Windows Media Player will not play back AAC files (.m4a, .m4b or mp4 extensions).
IMPORTANT NOTE: You may also receive a security warning the first time you attempt to open an .m4b file with the new version of Chapter Master, like this one:
“The selected file has an extension (.m4b) that is not recognized by Windows Media Player, but the Player may still be able to play it. (…)” Please check the checkbox labeled “Don’t ask me again for this extension” so Windows won’t keep asking, and then click “Yes”. If you have any concerns, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Other improvements in this version of Chapter Master include:
- Added the ability to import and export chapter times in the standard CUE file format.
- Fixed a bug in the batch processing module where the cover image would not be applied to all files in the batch.
