    Hi everyone

    Desperate help needed.

    I use audio hijack to interview people with Skype. Did an interview today and quit Skype before stopping the record on audio hijack.

    Now, Quicktime says that the file can not be recognised. Any ideas on how I can remedy this???

    All help truly appreciated.

    Cheers

    bah.. why in the hell did you save it as an aac file? should've did an mp3, you can usually save those and LOTS of apps read mp3 files fine despite being corrupted in some way or another. quicktime is really all that i know of that plays aac files.. you could try VLC and see if that helps.. then rehijack as mp3 or aiff...

    on a windows machine you MIGHT be able to get winamp to play it, then just use the disk writer plugin to export it all as a wav.. then reencode...
