If you are looking for CoreAAC Audio Decoder, you have come to the right place. We explain what CoreAAC Audio Decoder is and point you to the official download.

What is CoreAAC Audio Decoder?

The CoreAAC Audio Decoder is a utility required to use Windows Media Player. It is typically installed with the Windows package, but those who find it missing can also get it for free from Microsoft as one of its cost-free user plugins for the Windows Media Player. Microsoft classifies it as a type of Media Foundation Transform, which is basically a model that is used in processing media content. The CoreAAC Audio Decoder will decode both AAC and HE-AAC profiles, specifically those in the following list: MPEG-4 HE-AAC versions 1 and 2 provided they have an AAC-LC core, and multichannel MPEG-2 AAC-LC profiles. The AAC Audio Decoder in versions of Windows prior to Windows 8 actually differs from Windows 8’s decoder, since the Windows 8 version has an added decoding capability: it can decode even MPEG-4 audio streams with LOAS and LATM. The versions before it were restricted to decoding only ADTS.

Users of Windows Media Player who are having trouble playing back audio due to a missing CoreAAC Audio Decoder will get error C00D10D1. This means they need to download and install the codec properly first.
