Sebastian Andersson finished an AAC and MP4 input plugin for XMPlay which is available here:

     www.un4seen.com/files/z/2/xmp-aac.zip (updated: 26 Feb '13)

It should support all the usual stuff like playing, pausing, seeking, ReplayGain, tags... Please report any bugs and issues in this thread.

Thanks very much indeed for this. But I won't be able to try it out until such time as it supports streaming, since that is my only area of contact with the AAC codec (or to be exact, with AAC+, which is used by Netscape Radio). At present I use the Nullsoft MPEG decoder with XMPlay for this purpose. I wish you success in developing this plugin.

works fine, the only problem i encountered was that files coded with the old PsyTEL aacenc (v2.15, march 2002 Roll Eyes) using the PNS-tool just don't play (don't worry, the winamp-plugin doesn't either;)). but then again, that encoder is far too old... nice job Wink

Do you know if foobar2000 can play the file? I am not sure, but either Ivan or someone else said that it might be a bug in the encoder actually.

Yep, it was Ivan, but he said that FAAD isn't able to decode PNS.

no i don't know that, cause i don't use foobar (hey, i've got xmplay Wink). could indeed be a bug in the encoder, it's an oldie... but files coded with FAAC with TNS do work, so i guess it's not the plugin doing it wrong.

I guess it's FAAD2 which doesn't support PNS. None of the players I have were able to play an AAC file with PNS.

This plugin has the same crash bug that in_nsf.dll has: if you have a 0-byte file without an extension residing in a dir, and you try to add that dir to XMPlay using drag 'n' drop onto the main/mini panel, XMPlay will crash. Removing this plugin fixes it.

"So why have such files?" you say... well... some... dirs... will have those kind of files, heh.

Example:
( 127M 13F @ 278kbps - COMPLETE - Avantgarde 1989 258kbit )

Could you test with the new version, please? It doesn't crash on Sebastian Andersson's or my side anymore.

By the way... The link is http://www.un4seen.com/filez/2/xmp-aac.exe.

I just tried to play some AAC files encoded with the Adobe Audition AAC plugin but they don't play at all... Any ideas?
The files play well with the CoreAAC DirectShow plugin.

This CoolEdit Pro/Adobe Audition plugin does importing and exporting of AAC/MP4 streams, using FAAC 1.24 and FAAD2 2.0

I have updated xmp-aac to support streaming... however, I only tested the streams on the link Roj posted a while ago. Some tweaks have also been added.

Thanks to Ian Luck too!

Did you, by any chance, encoded PNS files? FAAD cannot decode PNS.

I tested this with the following stream;
http://160.79.128.40:7032/
And it works just fine. However, afterwards I tried to play some file in another format, wouldn't play... So I tested different files in different formats; WavPack, MusePack, OptimFROG, so on... no dice! It then occurred to me that in a split second "AAC" lighted up in the main display... I then reverted to the xmp-aac from the support site and all files play again. Seems this new xmp-aac locks everything else....

Using XMPlay 3.2.0.6 on XP sp2 BTW.

Unfortunately it doesn't seem to support Netscape Radio AAC+ streams, which are what I particularly need it for.  For example:

uvox://64.236.34.65/stream/8667

These streams play fine in XMPlay with the Nullsoft MPEG decoder.

To be honest: dunno.
I played around with all encoder settings but none of the files played.
This is the options dialog when saving AAC from Audition:



I think I'll abandon AAC anyway, because OGG gives much better sound quality at lower bitrates. Now all I need to get is a Rio Karma...

Maybe Audition writes RAW AAC files which are not supported by xmp-aac. I will have a look at the problem soon.
