      Description

      The .aac is the most used extension (used by Apple for audio tracks) for MP4
      audio. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Advanced_Audio_Coding (left/upper part
      of the screen) for supported extensions. I think jaudiotagger should support
      this extension and treated like an m4a file.

        This is very confusing but this page is pretty clear :

        "The MP4/M4A dual file extension thing is confusing. The thing to remember is
        that M4A files will always contain only MPEG 4 Audio. MP4 files can be used for
        MPEG 4 video files, combined video and audio files, or just plain MPEG 4 audio.
        It is recommended that you use the .m4a file extension rather than .mp4 on your
        audio files.
        .aac files are raw building blocks and will not be readable by iTunes/iPod
        devices. This extension should not be used at all.
        Think of M4A as a nice wrapper that contains an AAC file in it as well as other
        details such as standard ID3 tag info etc..."

        So, please close this ticket
