I downloaded audio file from YT, generated from https://en.savefrom.net/ with quality AAC 48kpbs. It seems the plugin doesn't support the format yet. Regards :)

It's a DASH file, which the AAC plugin cannot handle natively. However, there are workarounds to convert it to regular MP4 audio: https://www.un4seen.com/forum/?topic=3870.msg114846;topicseen#msg114846

Hopefully it will support this kind of file in the future. Fortunatelly, I found xmp-ffmpeg which support to play this file, but it is quite big for a XMPlay plugin. Regards :)

I am planning to add support for Windows' AAC/MPEG decoder in XMPlay. If you're using Windows 10 (or possibly Windows 8), that includes support for MPEG-DASH.

Yes, I'm using Windows 8.1. That would be a great addition for sure. Thanks for the news. Regards :)

I'm not entirely sure whether the MPEG-DASH support is included in Windows 8(.1). If you would like to check that, you can download the BASS library (which includes support for Windows' AAC decoder) and try playing the file with one of the pre-compiled examples included in the BASS package (C\BIN folder).

Yes, I just tried it with basstest.exe and bass.dll, it works.
