Hi, Why do I need to convert the same file in m4b and then, again into m4a - when Only the m4b file will contain the chapter information?

Even in your sample vidoe, you are importing the m4b file into your player...
?

"Download Epubor Audible Converter for free". This is misleading advertising. Yes, you may be able to download this program for free, but you have to pay to use it. :-(
