Re: AAC support in somaplayer?
I forgot to mention that streaming AAC on the internet is free from royalty fees unlike MP3, see the FAQs on ViaLicensing.com, the patent pool administrator for AAC.

AAC support in somaplayer?
How about adding the open source project FAAC to somaplayer? You can find more information on its Freshmeat project page. Recently Oddcast for Winamp/foobar2000 has implemented libfaac, so it's also possible to broadcast with the AAC LC profile (HE AAC not implemented yet) on Windows now. Icecast2 has also added AAC as a supported format a few days ago, the MIME type is audio/aac. SomaFM.com and other radio stations are already using aacPlus with the commercial Orban Opticodec-PC software, and these Shoutcast streams can be decoded with the FAAD2 decoder, e.g. in LAMIP, VLC or foobar2000. A list of aacPlus stations is available at http://www.tuner2.com/
