I took a peek again that the mp4 audio files, indeed they are using the AAC codec in a MP4 container.
So we should be set, though we could use MP3 files as well.

Philippe do you want me to email you MP3 files converted from the wav files directly?  
These mp3 files are ~ 1.8 megs total in size, so I don't want to spam this list with a big email.

Ah, I was wondering about that in fact. My various encoders were indeed acting strangely when I was trying to produce the combination.

Kris, note that the MP4 contains aac. Are you sure you're not looking for that? Or are you simply looking for an MP3 file?
