Required 3rd party software:
For files using MPEG AAC compression: AAC encoding and decoding is not part of this program per se - but it can talk to certain 3rd party software (external DLL's) to allow you to seamlessly handle this compression.
Please note that these external DLL's are not provided by FMJ-Software. You should be able to find them easily if you do a web-search for libfaad2.dll. However, you should also be aware that in some countries it is necessary for you to also obtain several very expensive patent licenses before you can legally use AAC technology.
- To read .AAC files, you need to get hold of a copy of the DLL version of the open source 'FAAD 2' decoder and copy the file 'libfaad2.dll' into the directory where you installed the program.
