    Windows Media Player doesn´t play podcasts - probs with aac audio and h.264 video

    I tried the TCPMP yet - they removed the AAC plugin, so it doesn´t play them, too. I´ve been trying diverse downloads from different links to the TCPMP (0.72 RC1 and 0.71 as well), but none of them was with AAC :-(

    I tried as well to install the ffmpeg plugin (for TCPMP), but that doesn´t work, too.

    The messages after installing the TCPMP from the given URL http://picard.exceed.hu/tcpmp/ looks like this: "Video codec (AVC aka H.264) not supported by the player" and "MPEG4 AAC Audio decoder not included (...) because of intellectual
    property considerations" (whatever...)

    This is driving me mad!

    So my last hope was to improve the Windows Media Player with the codec...

    Any suggestions??
