I think you'll have to be a bit more specific. Tellico should be able to read 
metadata for any audio file that the Taglib library can read. mpp4 can be hit 
or miss, I think, depending on how the file was created. Is it reproducable? 
That is, if Tellico misses the metadata for a certain file, does it miss it 
every time you try to read it? In that case, let me know what kind it is, 

According to the Taglib website, it supports "both ID3v1 and ID3v2 for MP3 
files, Ogg Vorbis comments and ID3 tags and Vorbis comments in FLAC, MPC, 
Speex, WavPack TrueAudio, WAV, AIFF, MP4 and ASF files. "  So if you have an 
example of one of those formats not working, that's a bug.
