    Please forgive me if this topic has been addressed before, but I was wondering if there's an audio player for Windows with AAC support. Help is greatly appreciated :) domo!

    Arigato,

    The QuickTime player works, but I guess you wanted something more sophisticated that's actually designed for playing music?

    i am not sure about this, i can check with a buddy of mine, but he said, i think, that he just used an MPEG-4 audio codec to play some AAC files i burned for him. in fact, instead of being .aac when he opened them on his PC, he said their extensions were .m4a instead. so you can probably get the codec to run them for just about any player that reads codecs. i think my buddy uses winamp. i'll ask tomorrow, though, if you still need the info.

    Okey dokey, thanks so much Shadowfax :)

    btw, on Mac as well, the file type is ".m4a"...
