Plugin Description

This plugin allows you to (finally) encode AAC+ streams on Linux/FreeBSD systems! On Windows, you could use the Winamp Encoder plugin, but the new AutoDJ AAC+ plugin works on Windows as well.

Why we have not had AAC+ support before now on Linux/FreeBSD

Many, many people have asked me to get the bot to support AAC+, but I have been unable to up to this point because there were no open source encoders available. With the availability of libaacplus, I can now add support for AAC+ to AutoDJ.

How do I get libaacplus?

Because of the licensing of the AAC+ encoder, I cannot provide a copy to you. I can however give you these instructions:

Getting libaacplus on Windows

On Windows, you can download a ready to use libaacplus.dll from one of the following sites and extract it to your RadioBot folder:

http://www.directmirror.com/files/0CHKXWPU
http://www.mediafire.com/?lb2b5fb4wsz5urk

For the security minded, the hash of the ZIP file when I downloaded it was:

md5sum: fdde63b331d215a816fab555f9a96711
sha256sum: a8d6ec279de9f38f431325470e706cbad9ed1b5e8e49383809f22b9493813faa

Getting libaacplus on Linux/FreeBSD

1. Using your package manager of choice, install fftw3 and fftw3-dev/devel (may be named differently depending on your platform/distro).
2. Go to the libaacplus homepage and download the latest version of the 2.0.x branch (not the 1.x versions) with wget/curl/whatever.
3. Use tar -xf libaacplus-2.0.2.tar.gz to extract the tar file and cd to the libaacplus-2.0.2 folder.
4. Type the following commands in your shell:

./autogen.sh
./configure
make
sudo make install
sudo ldconfig

5. You should now have a copy of libaacplus installed that the plugin can use.
