Playing AAC on Mac – A step-by-step explanation
In order to play something that is in the AAC format, you have to be familiar with its meaning. AAC is Advanced Audio Coding which is compression and encoding for digital audio. Files in this format have a higher quality of sound than those files available in the MP3 format, but with almost the same bit rates. It is a lossy, light format so when you try to convert some CD-quality files, a part of the data will be deleted from the file, but do not worry, the listening experience should stay intact. On the other hand, do have in mind that those files will not have the same quality as the ones from the CD. Just like it is with the MP3 quality, the AAC quality is measured in bit rate.
Although AAC is regarded to be more developed and progressive audio format, there are moments when you are just in need of an MP3 because this format is more popular in this case. There are still times when you will need an AAC file, and for those times you will need a player. Good news! Elmedia player can play AAC on Mac.
