Here's the reply I got from Nic when I asked him about helping with AAC and

Hi spyder,

If you want any help stopping the crashing of mkv files, then put the source
of the dshow filter into cvs and ill have a look. Ive become quite a veteran
of fixing dshow crashes

have you checked out borg software's one ? There AAC filter isn't as good as
mine (but I dont know why). But the source is neat and there to be fixed.

Out of interest, if you mux a VBR MP3 thats had a WAV header attached, and
then mux it into MKV file as a wav file, how well does it play back? If it
plays back well, then the same can be done with AAC. If not then you'll need
to make an AAC parser (that takes the individual frames out of the AAC file
and mux it "properly"  )

And I will drop by the channel soon, I have my gf here at present, but will
be free easter sunday & monday.

(Im quite interested in making my re-write of dvd2avi support mkv, but I
dont know how difficult or easy that will be compared to using something
like the AVI API (ill have to look at the CVS code). Maybe ill just make it
so it makes a script for MatroskaDUB (I dont know yet, only just really
thought about it  )

Sorry for the hurried PM, feel free to share this with anyone you think
might find it useful.

Take Care Spyder,
