M4P and .m4p audio file format:
M4P format is "protected AAC". It is a format of purchased music that can be listened to only through the iTunes softer or an iPod.
.m4p as a file extension is almost identical to .m4a and .m4b extensions, thus being a MPEG-4 file container for encoded audio. The encoding (compression method) of the audio can be virtually anything, but the AAC-based encoding is currently the most common one. The one big difference between .m4a and .m4p is the fact that .m4p is copy-protected with DRM mechanisms, so it can't be played by unauthorized users at all. Virtually all of the .m4p files nowadays are audio tracks bought from Apple's iTunes music store.
