Does not work on all m4a! (most of my m4a files are downloaded from youtube) VLC can play them just fine.

#74 - vincent rated this file 4 stars on 2016-01-05, 23:20:51
Does not open anymore mp4/m4a file downloaded from youtube. Maybe there is a problem with the DASH system.
Please update :-)

For ALAC (Apple) version of .m4a use this plugin: http://support.xmplay.com/files_view.php?file_id=521

AAC is very nice for radios, less bandwidth for good quality

#59 - Maan Hamze commented this file on 2013-12-26, 04:56:34
And I was wondering why all sky.fm channels were not opening in xmplay.
They use AAC :D

After copying the file you have to restart XMPlay.
If it still doesn't play, try installing ALAC input plug-in and restart XMPlay again.

Despite the claim by an earlier poster, this plugin has not worked for ANY lossless aac/m4a file I've ever downloaded in the internet. foobar2000 can play the same files flawlessly.

I was mulling over switching to Audacious for its MP4 playing, but this plugin does the job just fine - and for about 10x less memory. Great job!

#40 - Jays rated this file 5 stars on 2011-10-02, 19:15:37
Amazing! I couldn't listen to my webradio since they changed to aac+, but now it works perfectly!

#39 - Zenon rated this file 5 stars on 2011-09-29, 08:23:13
I tried to play some m4a, it works nice except for the songs playlist, which has fonts completely wrong..
Don't know if it's a fault of my m4a's, anyway this plugin deserves a 5 star

#38 - geckojsc rated this file 5 stars on 2011-09-14, 16:21:00
Perfect! Now I don't have to suffer the clunkiness of iTunes to listen to my library. :D

#20 - John rated this file 4 stars on 2008-03-12, 13:07:43
Works great for my m4a files. Tried playing m4p files, didn't work. I thought m4p was same/similar to mp4 so i expected it to work.
Is there m4p support for XMPlay?

#19 - RoadRunner rated this file 5 stars on 2007-11-26, 14:20:45
Fantastic tool, mp4 works perfect for me, what more can I ask for?!

#17 - PVTele rated this file 5 stars on 2007-11-17, 13:45:03
Excellent - does just what it says on the tin. Download, close XMP, extract the .dll to the XMP directory, start XMP, associate file type, and away you go. Flawless streaming aac+!

It works well with most of .m4a lossless files but there are some ancients ones which doesn't.. Thanks Sebastian.

When I let you seek it during reproduction and I stop and play it again, Artifact noise occurs.

Playfile:mp4(PS+SBR,SBR,LC)

Comment from Thomas: Sebastian Andersson claims that the updated version plays .m4a again.

A first-class plugin - instantly and smoothly plays any AAC(+) local file or stream you throw at it.
