Windows Media Player used to have a plugin from Orban that allowed aac+. No longer available, unfortunately. So much for the "rumours" a few yers back that WMP11 would play aac+ natively

No ... there is no "embedded" aac+ capable player ... except maybe VLC, but VLC is an unstable load crap IMHO

Whilst Flashplayer can play aac+, it can't "stream" it, except from Flash Media Server (includes Red5 and other clones) - as a side note, to this, a branch of icecast can stream "natively" to flash - perhaps AOL could duplicate this functionality, it's pretty simple
