Default mp4?

Has anyone had any success in using the Winamp plugins for mp4/aac audio, or any plans to incorporate either quicktime or FAAC mp4 audio compatability?

MP4 can be played if you use 3ivx codec. It supports the format.

About QT, I don't know. Maybe bst will add this in a further release.
I am searching for a qt splitter. If I find this, then it will work.

as always you have to differentiate:
in this case we have an AAC stream in the MP4 container format

MP4 is a container format like AVI, OGM, Matroska, MPG, ASF, MOV...
to be possible to use a specific container format in a directshow based player (like bsplayer) you need a splitter or parser filter, which splits up the container format into the included streams during playback

These container formats can hold different types of multimedia streams:
for example MPEG-4 Video (like Divx5 or XviD) or MP3 or AAC (encoded with FAAC for example), Vorbis...
to be possible to play a specific media stream you need the specific decoder filter, which can decode the encoded stream

these filter are not dependant on the player, in which they are used, as every directshow based player can use every directshow filter!!!
this also means that the player doesnt decode the streams, the filter do!


now for this special case:
a MP4 splitter is for example available in the 3ivx package
an AAC decoder is also available in 3ivx (as alternative you can also use CoreAAC)

3ivx also includes a MOV splitter (if that is what you meant with QT)

Thanks to both of you. I'll hunt down the 3ivx and see what I can get out of it, plus try the winamp plugins and see if I can work them into the sam file as operating filters. Something's bound to work. Yesterday at work, some guys had downloaded that little Paris Hilton clip, and in WinMediaPlayer it was trash. I showed it to them in BSPlayer and got a few Wows out of them. It's a .wmv file, and made Microsoft look second rate by comparison. Viva La BS!
