Hello,

my workaround annoying me and I please for help. Gmusicbrowser does not show my AAC files in library. If I add a MP3 extension to the AAC files and adding them to library of Gmusicbrowsers the songs a playable and listed in Gmusicbrowsers's library. If I add a M4A extension to the AAC files gmusicbrowser will not show up the songs.

- gmusicbrowser 1.1.9
- gstreamer is active
- I am using Ubuntu 12.04
- AAC files - information from VLC player: MPEG ACC Audio (mp4a); SBR

By the way does VLC player not playing AAC files which were renamed with MP3 extension.

Best regards,

David

Can you send me one of these files by email ?
One possible explanation is that the files contain a id3v2 or ape tag at the start of the file.

yes, I found a id3v2 tag at the start of the file. Please delete this file after you downloaded it.

aac files are not really supposed to use id3v2 tags, where are those files coming from ?
I could make it ignore or even use the tag, but unless there is a significant source of those files, I'd rather work on something else.
If you want to remove these tags, you can use the program id3v2, with the -D option, you can easily do a shell command to remove all of them.

I tried "id3v2 -d" but gmusicbrowser still not add the test-file in the library. I was looking for a different workaround and found this a way: convert AAC files with ID3V2 tags to M4A files. The meta information is now stored at the end of the file.

".aac to .m4a.. possible?
[..]
ffmpeg -i 1.aac -vn -acodec copy 2.m4a"

Thank you for M4A file support! :-)

M4A file workaround is doing well with ID3V2 tool.
