.aac files are not the same as AAC. We support AAC in MP4 files as per the standard. Raw AAC streams are something else and unsupported since theres no reason for them to exist.

Which file list does it not show up in? the database or the file browser or something else?

edit: aac is not in the list of supported extensions so that's why it doesn't show up and isn't playable
are these files different from m4a or just the extension?

edit again: a simple rename to m4a doesn't do it so we need to modify or add a new parser for this format to be able to play it

The aac file doesn't show up in the filebrowser. In database I'm not sure, because there are several other files with the same and similar tags. If you want to to know it, I'll look it up more thoroughly.

As the feature comparison page says "AAC/MP4 Decoding: yes" I was assuming that aac was suppurted. If thats not the case, it's not important to me; just wanted to report it. The file is not renamed.

AAC in an MP4 container is supported. AAC in ADTS is not, however.
