Hello,
i donīt know if there is a solution, if you found a solution to show chapters.
I do have audiobooks in *.m4b. I can play them using foobar, but its not possible to switch between chapters. How can I do that? I canīt see any button or menu entry. The file does have chapters, with chapter-covers, i can see and use booth in quicktime.
Thx for any help.

I just tried to find information about m4b and foobar2000 support.
Unfortunately there seems to be only ONE information:

Fb2k plays m4b but without chapters.

All threads about that topic died quickly.

I am really suprised about missing m4b chapter support!

Yes, fb2k doesn't support QuickTime style chapters used in m4b audiobooks;
However, you can convert it to Nero style chapters, which fb2k can read.

1. Download mp4v2-r479-windows-binaries.zip from here.
2. Remove title tag of m4b if present.
3. Run mp4chaps.exe in the mp4v2 archive like the following:
QUOTE
mp4chaps -c -N path\to\your\audiobook.m4b

With this command line, Nero style chapters are created from QuickTime style chapters and appended to the m4b file. Original QuickTime style chapters are still there, and iTunes/iPod will be able to read it.
Without step 2, fb2k will show duplicated title for each chapters (instead of chapter name).
