Playing Tracks

Why can't I play AAC/ MPEG files?

Due to licensing restrictions no AAC decoder can be distributed with MusicBee.

Tracks are played in MusicBee using the BASS audio library, which has an add-on to play AAC tracks. You can download the add-on for your own personal use:

  • download bass_aac.zip
  • unzip and copy bass_aac.dll to the folder MusicBee is installed eg. \Program Files\MusicBee
  • restart MusicBee
