I'm just guessing what could be causing your exact errors, but I do
know that mpeg4 support has to be compiled into the taglib using a
compiler flag inorder for it to work. I'm not sitting in front of a
machine right now that has it so I can't check what th exact flag is,
but it might be something like
./configure --enable-mpeg4 or something. Just go ./configure --help to
see what flag is required to enable m4a, mp4 etc support.
