It seems that this issue has been already discussed. [Worez was my previous account]

But continuing this inquiry; i.e. trying to get to the core of the issue or at least coming up with some satisfying workaround:

It seems that I do know what exactly is playing my M4A files in Winamp and how coded they were. But if MediaInfo [mediainfo.sourceforge.net] is showing me

then does it mean that my M4As are AACs? AAC LCs to be precise- thus lossless for sure?
