The Orban/Coding Technologies AAC/aacPlus Player Plugin
is a free, full-featured software plug-in for Windows Media Player
, capable of playing AAC / aacPlus / HE-AACv1 / HE-AACv2 / eAAC+ audio files and streams in several standards-based, non-proprietary formats using the genuine Coding Technologies decoder.
Real-time file and stream information such as stream name, description, artist, title, and file media graphics are displayed in the video window of the media player. This information is rendered locally on the client computer, eliminating the need to include video in the file or stream. This real-time information can also be used in custom, embedded, and HTMLView Windows Media Players.
The installation of this component is extremely light and simple, with no authentication, registration, monitoring, tracking, commercials, other push content, spyware, or hijacking of existing players.
Now, the existing widely deployed, massively dominant Windows Media Player user base can hear quality audio from services such as Internet and IP radio, which can now be competitive with terrestrial digital and satellite radio.

Works on WMP9 (on XP) and dead easy to install, ran install file straight from the zip. Took just seconds. Excellent results.
This is the good stuff from the company who invented the SBR technology to make AAC into aacPlus High quality, bandwidth-efficient audio is now a reality for Windows Media Player.
