M4B Audiobook - What is M4B and how to open it
What is M4B?
A file with the M4B file extension is a MPEG-4 Audio Book file. It is used by audiobooks downloaded from the Apple iTunes store. These audiobooks are copy-protected using Apple's FairPlay DRM, which means they can only be played on authorized computers or iOS devices. Audiobooks that you buy from the iBooks Store or iTunes Store are automatically available in the iBooks app on iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch using iOS 9 and later, and in iTunes on a Mac with iTunes 12.4 or later.
How to open an M4B audiobook on a Computer
M4B audiobooks you purchased from iTunes Store will play only in iTunes on authorized computers . To authorize the computer, run iTunes and click Account - Authorizations - Authorize This Computer. Enter your Apple ID and password and then click Authorize. Please note you can authorize up to 5 computers for each Apple ID, which means you can only enjoy your audiobook on 5 computers. In iTunes, choose Audiobooks from the menu in the upper-left corner. Double-click an audiobook to start listening. When you stop listening, iTunes remembers where you stopped and starts there the next time that you return to your audiobook.
