    Wandering over to Infantile Paralysiser's site ( http://mdxonline.dyndns.org/archives/nds/ ) I saw that a prototype AAC decoder for moonshell has appeared, I do not know about anyone else but AAC has taken up residence as my standard of choice for video encodes and sits alongside FLAC for when audiophile mode kicks in:
    I fired a couple of AAC tracks over to my memory card and had a look, it needs raw aac streams (as opposed to AAC in MP4 type containers). Sound quality is pretty good (I tested a 100kbps VBR track encoded with FAAC and found it about as good as a 192 kbps mp3 done with LAME) and I will hopefully get around to testing some more and using a better encoder (nero do a very good free one for what it is worth: http://www.nero.com/nerodigital/eng/Nero_Digital_Audio.html ).
    MP4box with GUI for demuxing if you need it: http://yamb.unite-video.com/features.html
    I am in a rush so no in depth guide/linkfest right now but you need to have the aac.msp file in the plugin directory and LC aac is advised.

    For stereo audio still prefer ogg, for 5/7.1 aac is certainly the best.
