The tags in m4a files are read by the qtdemux plugin which is actually
in gst-plugins-bad.  Which version of that package are you running?

that was it.  I did not have gst-plugins-bad installed.  I know have
0.10.3 installed and everything is cool.

Does this mean that the ability to read m4a tags relies on an
unmaintained plugin?  I thought that's what the bad package was for.
So will m4a tag support eventually just go away? *shiver*  Thanks for
the help.
