I was wondering does anyone know if there is any chance of AAC support anytime in the future, hopefully soon?
Contrary to popular belief, AAC is not an Apple codec, but is a Faunhofer codec, the successor to mp3. Apples iTunes is now no longer tainted by the DRM filth, and there are over 6 billion AAC encoded tracks out there, and it might be useful if people could play them on things other than iPods - such as the Fuze. I have bought a number of iTunes tracks now that they are sans-drm, most of which are songs that are not available anywhere else (unless you don’t mind a spot of piracy). It is annoying that I can only play them on my Fuze after re-encoding them and losing sound quality in the process. I can play them on my Cowon D2 and I note that many other players, including I believe the Sansa View can now play AAC. So why not the Fuze?
I would be quite prepared to pay (at a reasonable price) for a special firmware upgrade that includes AAC support, if its a matter of royalties.
Failing that, I guess I will have to bide my time till Rockbox is ported to the Fuze (not long now).
