If you want complete (unprotected) AAC support, install my plugin AND the faad2 plugin. The faad2 plugin will then play back all .aac and .mp4 files, and my plugin will play back .m4a files (which are coming from iTunes, can definitely be played by Quicktime and use the Mpeg-4 tagging standard that faad does NOT support).

better use faad2 for your mp4/m4a files because quicktime isn't compatible with all possible mp4 files (eg. other profiles than lc like he-aac/aacplus)
This is probably true, but if you use both plugins, those (rare) files with other profiles are still played back with the faad plugin, because they never have a .m4a but a .mp4 or .aac extension.
I think someone should update the faad2 plugins to support the iTunes tagging format, then we can use it for m4a files too.
