Could you elaborate, please? Which bitrates do you mean by low/middle?Thanks,

Don't know what encoder is behind that, though.which is not free iirc...the only free way is to use the libraries from win7 but the AAC encoder is very limited (LC only - 128/160/192kbps as target bitrates).

As for the libraries in Windows 7, I didn't find a way to use them yet.

I believe that encoders from Microsoft and DivX still need lot of work and improvement in quality.It would be good if someone could do a listening test on them.
IIRC MS AAC encoder is only available in Windows 7 and Server 2008 R2.

Is DivX Plus still in beta 2 stage?
Quote from: Sylph on 05 March, 2010, 11:08:09 AMIs DivX Plus still in beta 2 stage?if you're referring to DivX AAC encoder it's still in beta 1 stage actually.http://labs.divx.com/node/11682
There's also Matteo Croce's "aacplusenc"
Competitive AAC encoders:1. Apple 2. Nero3. Coding Technologies (now Dolby)4. Fraunhofer. Sorenson Squeeze and Magix application(?). Have they the updated and full functionality version of Fraunhofer encoder?
EDIT: Actually, I'm using what ever AAC is in XLD... and just assume it's Apple's?
1. The PS3 only handling .3gp-AAC's fine2. Apple for pushing it's .m4a-extention... Mpeg-4 should be .MP4!
Yes, it's Apple: QuickTime/CoreAudio AAC encoding
