AAC and OS 9 - Mac Applications & Software

    Default AAC and OS 9

    I have several older Macs, a 7200/90, and a 7600/132. They
    are running Mac OS 9.1. I would like to use them to play my AAC encoded
    music files that I encoded using iTunes on my main machine that runs OS
    X.

    I want to move the files from the OS X box via Ethernet to the other
    machines to free up the OS X box and so I do not have to run the OS X
    box to play music files.

    What I need is a program to play AAC files under OS 9. Money being tight
    at present, replacing the older machines with a nice new Mac is not an
    option at this time. Having ripped a lot of CD's to AAC on the OS X box,
    I don't want to have to repeat the effort to rip them all over again in
    MP3 if I can avoid it.

    Thanks.

    I can play AAC* files on my Mac under 9.1 but you have to change the
    file type to mpg4 or QuickTime Player (QuickTime 6.02) won't recognize
    them.
    You can find freeware/shareware file type editors on:
    http://www.versiontracker.com

    * Note that I haven't tried this with iTunes music files but only with
    some internet radio archive files such as from this site :

    Hadn't thought of that, though I knew about it on OS X. I wonder if
    since QuickTime supports it, does iTunes under OS 9.1? That would be the
    ideal solution, to get iTunes to handle it under OS 9.1.
     

    I will have to check out that site sometime.

    Thanks for the help.

    Haven't tried it.

    FYI the creator code for iTunes is 'hook' without the quotes and it must
    be lower case. I have no idea why they used 'hook' unless it's a sly
    reference to music pirates.
