XMPlay and AAC
« on: 17 Apr '18 - 03:20 »
I have not added the xmp-aac.dll plugin to XMPlay;  as AAC radio streams play perfectly, I assume XMPlay is using the DirectShow AAC supplied by Windows 7.

Is there any advantage to using the xmp-aac.dll instead of relying on the default behavior?  I notice it has been recently updated.

AAC is available through Media Foundation (not DirectShow) on modern systems. There's no advantage in using xmp-aac when you can use the system-provided decoder.

The AAC plugin is only really still needed on Windows XP (or non-updated Vista) and older.
