Try navigating to the m4a album folders, right-click or long select (hold down until a pop-up menu appears) and click the Rescan Tags option (or equivalent, I can’t remember exact name). Click the option to do a full scan.

how is the mac port coming?
Slower than I was hoping. I’m going to wait until .NET 6 is released before doing much more. A lot of what’s being done in .NET MAUI (the multi platform UI) is based on iOS now. So I’m waiting to see what happens in next couple of months.

You can't, its very lossy.

mp3 chops out frequencies if they are below a threshold, so you can't add them back in - its why sometimes you'll notice something like a cowbell appears to be more prominent in mp3 compared to the mix straight from CD. Lots of claims of up-sampling & interpolation methods, but once its gone from the source what is it you're adding?

I just ripped some .mlp from a dvd audio disc created mka files with mkvtoonix. when I try and convert the mka files to m4a with MMH it creates zero size files everytime. Any suggestions?

I messaged a link to the mlp file
It looks like the m4a container does not support mlp. I get this error message when attempting to copy an mlp stream from an MKA or using a mlp file directly as the input:

codec not currently supported in container. Could not write header for output file #0

I'll dig deeper but at this stage I have no solution to get mlp into m4a..

I assume you want m4a for tagging support? Are you using Kodi?

I have converted by DVDAs to FLAC. That's one alternative. MLP to FLAC is a lossless conversion.
If you want to keep MLP you could create a CUE file for the MKAs to get 'tags' to work
