Hmm... unless I'm missing something, it looks like I've got to wait an hour before I can download the file O_O
So... you've got ffmpeg
installed, which apparently now includes an alac decoder...
(hmm... is the binary included with mplayer?)
If you want Winamp to make use of said alac decoder/ds filter, then you'll need to add ;M4A to the Extension List in the DirectShow Decoder (in_dshow) config.
However, this will then make Winamp use in_dshow for all .m4a files (instead of in_mp4), so maybe you should rename the alac-only files with a different extension, eg. .alac or .M4L and add that extension to in_dshow instead.
Note, I've no idea whether this works or not, though I might try it once I've got hold of the file. I'm also not sure about installing ffmpeg either (though I've got ffdshow installed). Hmm....
Yeah, as you can see, I'm a bit confused here. Sorry, heh.
It doesn't seem like the ffmpeg binary actually includes an external alac decoder.
Looks like we may need someone to compile this
I'm still pretty certain that you can't play alac with either the nullsoft or audiocoding/rarewares in_mp4, and they'll only be playable after transcoding to standard
aac or other supported format with eg. dBPowerAmp Converter.
ps. I've given up on trying to get that rapidshare download to work.
That's gotta be the worst free host ever :/
