Currently the -w option (faac version 1.23.1) will create
a mp4 file with only 1 track.

Track Type Info
1 audio MPEG-4, 279.785 secs, 201 kbps, 44100 Hz

The current in_mp4 converter/wrapper will create a mp4
file with 3 tracks.

Track Type Info
1 audio MPEG-4, 279.785 secs, 201 kbps, 44100 Hz
2 od Object Descriptors
3 scene BIFS

Please update faac to create a 3 tracks mp4 file since it
seems to be much more compatible with various players.

    The OD and Scene tracks are not mandatory for an audio-
    only MP4 file, because the FAAC method with -w (or chosing
    the MP4 format in foo_faac, the GUI in in foobar2000) is
    compliant to the MPEG-4 standard. You can find a related
    discussion in the GPAC forums on SourceForge.

    If you have difficulties playing MP4 files in Winamp that were
    created with FAAC, you might update your in_m4.dll first,
    because there have been a lot of changes recently.
