as I am using lots of AAC encoded files in my music database
running on my pvr settop-box,
I improved the implementation of FaadDecoderPlugin so that
AAC files are now seekable.
It is tested on Linux/Intel and Linux/Mipsel.

If you are interested in that change, please let me know how to submit my changes back.
(I have little experience with git).

Currently I cloned the git (0.18.8) made my changes locally on a branch and merged that branch back to master in my local git.

I had to modify:

I found that the patch from here: ... 00029.html

My question is:
1) This patch is for which version? 0.18.x ? 0.19.x?
2) Why in 0.19.9, aac files still cannot be seeking? Any plan to implemented?

Thanks anymore!

As stated above, the change is against mpd 0.18.8.
Max rejected the change, as it was not isolated enough.

Indeed, I did some changes on the container-classes and file-access classes used by the decoder-plugins, too;
Imho there was/is no clear semantical separation between them, that's why I modified them.
So these changes are probably touching system-design questions and I can understand that a bugfix contribution is not the proper way to address such issues.

On the other hand, the modified mpd 0.18.8 is running nicely for 1+ year in my living room, so you might easily compile your private version using that patch.
