Which in_mp4.dll should I use? Do they all support HE AAC decoding?


AudioCoding.com
http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/faac/in...c3.exe?download
* The MP4 Winamp plugin is build around the fast and portable FAAD2 AAC decoder library. It currently only supports decoding of AAC tracks inside MP4 files, but in the future it will support the most common audio track types.

RareWares
http://rarewares.hydrogenaudio.org/files/in_mp4.zip
* MP4 Input Plugin for Winamp 2004-02-05
* Plays AAC and MP4 in Winamp2 and Winamp5. Includes MP4 tagging.

Nullsoft MP4 demuxer v0.3 (Winamp 5.02)
* basic MP4 AAC encoding/decoding (thanks to Menno Bakker for the help)


Who can tell me the difference? Menno can you be of some assistance?

I don't want to confuse you even more, but I'd suggest trying Case's compile first; Case is working very closely with Menno and his compile should always include the latest changes/fixes.

Is Case's version based on FAAD2? I thought Menno was the main developer of FAAD2... Why has he worked on TWO different version (Nullsoft & AudioCoding). Who's the author of the RareWares version?

That is the plugin I compile only when there is a new faad2 release at SourceForge. Usually plugins at RareWares and Case are more up-to-date.

That is the plugin compiled by John33 or me more or less "whenever we feel like".

It is the plugin that comes with Winamp 5.02 and only demultiplexes MP4 streams. It won't support HE AAC decoding because it feeds the AAC data to the Winamp decoder (which doesn't support SBR)

Case only works on the plugin interface. The decoder (FAAD2) is developed by Menno. And the Nullsoft version has nothing to do with FAAD2. Menno only helped them implementing MP4 support.

Just to clarify: All these in_mp4 PlugIns (except for the Nullsoft one) are based on exactly the same code (but different versions of it) and use FAAD2 as their AAC decoder. Case's compile usually uses the latest code and is what I'd would recommend you to use.

Sometimes, yes.

Often, no.

Depends on who updated their compiles latest.

How does the version of in_mp4.dll now included with Winamp 5.2 fit into this puzzle?

I've read that the Winamp version:

- allows ripping of AAC files from within Winamp
- does not decode SBR (HE-AAC).

Is this accurate, and how does that compare to the versions above?

Is there any version that both supports ripping and SBR?

Thanks.

The in_mp4.dll included with winamp 5.02 only does decoding... If you replace it you loose nothing you only gain HE AAC (SBR) decoding (and standard compliance).

There's a Winamp Forums sticky (Most Requested Features / Plug-ins) that's linking to this page wink.gif
