Title: Xmms doesn't play aac+ radio streams
Post by: Ainvar on May 28, 2007, 11:41:19 am
I am using Xmms 12.10, I want to know if there's a way to make it play aac+ streams. There are so many radios using this format, and it won't open any files of this type. Is there a way i could make it play them? And with the mp3 radios, if there's a problem with the connection, it just stops playing the radio, and won't buffer it again.
Please, if you know a way to make it work, tell me, the aac+ format has great quality at a low bitrate and it's the best alternative for mp3 stations.
Thank you.

I can't help you with xmms, but I use vlc for aac streams.

RealPlayer has a plugin for AAC. I read somewhere that Exaile can play AAC but I can't confirm that. Exhaile is very poorly documented. I don't know if AAC is the same as AAC+.
