Hi everyone, just a quick question, does anyone know of an aac decoder or encoder that works under IRIX, as I prefer these to MP3.

Any ideas, or will I need to keep on encoding in mp3 in iTunes :)

Hmmm, I just found one for Linux
Maybe I'll try getting it running under Irix real quick...

Would you like that AAC player in a GTK environment or a command line? heh

I tend to use mpg123 heaps, so command line would be good. :)

I have seen the one for linux, I havn't tried compiling it yet, I am still having a look to see if there is one that will work under IRIX.

Well the one I found, looks like it runs as an XMMS plugin, so I don't know if it will work for me.

So to use this one It looks like I need to isntall XMMS, hmmm may just bite the bullet and give it a go.

Ack!

I have mips pro 7.2.1 here, and when trying to compile libsndfile which is needed, it bombs out with this:

Code:
cc -DHAVE_CONFIG_H -I. -I. -I. -g -c pcm.c  -DPIC -o .libs/pcm.lo
"float_cast.h", line 173: error(1011): unrecognized preprocessing directive
        #warning "Don't have the functions lrint() and lrintf()."
         ^

"float_cast.h", line 174: error(1011): unrecognized preprocessing directive
        #warning "Replacing these functions with a standard C cast."
         ^

2 errors detected in the compilation of "pcm.c".
*** Error code 1 (bu21)
*** Error code 1 (bu21)
*** Error code 1 (bu21)
*** Error code 1 (bu21)


No Joy, any ideas?

But it it compiles it must be fine :D

Oh well I may just have to stick with MP3 for my encoding on my mac.

One thing I do like about Mac OS X is that it supports NFS, so all my 40 gig or so of MP3s are easy to share with all of my machines.

True, but I'd still like to try getting it to work...

Maybe tomorrow when I'm a bit more awake and all :)

Thanks heaps, I may be just a UNIX admin, working in another field at the moment, but I can't code to save my own life :D so your help here is great.

I'd love AAC playback as well as I'm also a huge fan after iTunes 4 :) I've already encoded a good portion of my CD collection to the new format.

Well, I'm going to spend a couple of hours today hopefully getting this command-line player working, so POSSIBLY soon we'll have a nice lil aac player.

Personally I've never used the format, but hey :)

To my ears, AAC seems to sound better than a MP3 at the same bitrate, and they are about the same size, I have been playing with it, since I got iTunes 4 on my mac, so if it is possible to play these under IRIX it would be fantastic.

Yep, I have all sorts of room on my iPod now that I've replaced the larger MP3 files with AAC.

i personally use oggs since they are smaller and usually better quality at lower bit rates so 96 kb/s can sound as good as a 128kb/s mp3 if encoded right.

I used mp3 only a short while but switched to ogg and used acc for a little bit simple because the university doesn;t like students have mp3 files on machine connected to the network and do look for shared ones at time but of course the guys who scan it can;t tell their asshole from their elbow so think don;t search for ogg or aac :twisted:

ogg doesn't work on iPods so that's just not an option for me personally :)
