Had to reload FB2k last week.
I downloaded the 8.3 Special Installer, and installed.
Many titles began to experience "scalefactor bands exceeded" and would not play, then noticed these errors are only on aac files.

I still have the 8.2 special installer, so I installed this version and everything is back to normal.

What am I missing from 8.3 which would support aac codec?
Tempted to re rip these titles into MP3 to avoid future compatibility issues.

TIA

(searched without success)

WinAmp 2.95 Raw .AAC format. It was a long time ago. May be better to re-rip with EAC/Lame to improve quality and time display (currently these files show .01 total time)

bitrate = 128
channels = 2
samplerate = 44100
aac_profile = AAC Main
aac_header_type = RAW
codec = AAC

Why not convert them to a newer AAC format? Here is a small utility called "Ivan & Menno" http://members.home.nl/w.speek/ivan&menno.htm This program can convert your files to MP4 (m4a) AAC's. It's pretty easy to use too!

RAW AAC means the files have no header, so the decoder can't know what samplerate, channels, encoding mode, etc...are used.

Don't use it. Ever.

I'm interested in getting one of the files that doesn't play though, since I don't remember any changes 0.8.2 -> 0.8.3 that could break this. But it's still a particularly bad idea.

Thx for the input.
I tried Ivan & Menno early last year to wrap these into an MP4 container. Don't recall exactly what I was trying to acomplish, easy to use but didn't work as expected. Perhaps the RAW format was a bad call & I should just start over with mp3 rather than waisting more time with this group of titles.

I'm certain I used fb 8.3 when it 1st became available, without issue. It's the now current download which has caused issue with my aac titles.
