M4A is a file extension for MPEG-4 Part 14 or MP4 files, a multimedia container format to store compressed audio and video data. M4A (audio only) is often compressed with AAC encoding (lossy), but can also be in Apple Lossless format. M4A files are very similar to MP4 video files, however M4A files only contain audio. Songs in iTunes Store are in the M4A format. To make the size of these songs smaller AAC compression is used.
