    AeroPlayer will soon offer an AAC plugin that will let you play AAC-encoded MPEG-4 music files (with .m4a extensions), including Apple iTunes music store purchases, thanks to the Hymn Project.

    I know this is something that both Aeroplayer and Pocket Tunes users have been asking for.

    Apple can't "squash" it; the Aeroplayer guys bought a license to use the format.

    Kool...time to dump Pocket Tunes!

    Even unprotected AAC support would be great as 99.9% of my music is in that format.

    I've been using Kinoma - it works well but I'd love to have access to my protected AAC files. Hopefully, someone will post when the plugin is available.

    According to NormSoft, AAC support is planned for the next major release of
    Pocket Tunes, after they complete WMA DRM support. This is from the PocketTunes Yahoogroup.

    I went back to the source that you got this from and noticed that you left out the last sentence of the paragraph. It reads:
    See http://www.hymn-project.org for further information, and please note that Aerodrome is not affiliated in any way with the Hymn Project, nor can we provide support.

    Honestly, I can't believe they are trying to charge $15 with marketing like this to get you to use an illegal piece of software, that being Hymn, of which they are not even creating, distributing, selling or supporting.

    On a side note: I also think it's ludicrous that this hacker(I am in no way refering to Aerodrome here) keeps changing the name of this "HYMN-project" and running from country to country just to find someone to host his site.

    Maybe for unprotected AAC files this is true, but I have not heard of a single company that has gotten a license from Apple that will allow them to play iTunes DRM on any device. The iPod is the only mp3 player that can play iTunes licensed music.

    To play protected AAC files, just burn them to a CD or DVD, then re-import to iTunes.

    Yeah, I know this works - I'm just trying to be lazy, although if the AeroPlayer solution is less than above-board I may have to re-think. This is the first I've heard of the Hymn project - interesting.

    But can Kinoma Player play MP3 files as well? Many of us have both MP3s and AACs in our jukeboxes/playlists. It would be nice to have one app to do both.

    I was also baffled by the fact that Kinoma didn't play MP3s files, so I wrote them and they confirmed that MP3 files are NOT supported by Kinoma player.

    Just find that odd since it's one of the more basic (and popular) formats.
