Foobar and AAC

Is there any way to set Foobar2000 so that it displays the bit rate and length (Duration Time) of AAC files like Winamp, VLC, and other players do? Also a bar so that playback start time can be set to any time within the file.  I have a lot of long recordings of broadcasts that use AAC encoding, and am considering changing my default player to Foobar if it can do this like it does for mp3, FLAC, etc.

It's working fine for me too, but if you have *.aac files in ADTS muxing mode then the duration is missing.

Mux them into an MP4 container and you'll get an approximate duration.
Code: [Select]
ffmpeg -i in.aac -c copy out.mp4
