Don't use Gmusicbrowser, but considering it's a quick build tried the 1.1.5 ver.
If you wish aac (m4a, ect) playback it seems you need to enable either gstreamer or mplayer.
notice in 1st. screen gstreamer was grayed out, went back and reviewed the install file in source.
Installing libgstreamer-perl and maybe libgstreamer-interfaces-perl enabled gstreamer option.

Both gstreamer and mplayer will allow aac playback, though it doesn't seem to read the tags very well or at all for m4a's

(you may consider this player which is far better supported and enabled

You know if you convert from MP3 to ACC the sound quality on your files will be at best slightly worse than the original MP3 file?

I dont know why you would want to move to ACC anyway. In these days of huge HDDs, a lossless codec is a better choice IMO. Flac or wavpack are the best of the lossless codecs, I use flac myself

Yes, I'm sure.

A sound file can never sound better than the source, so if you convert from MP3 then it will always have the limitations of the original MP3 file.

As why it could sound 'worse'- AAC (and MP3) are 'lossy' codecs, meaning that some of the data originally present has been removed (compared to the original CD, etc, source). AAC has a different way of figuring out what data to remove. If AAC removed data that was present in the MP3 file, they the AAC file will have less of the data that was present in the MP3......so it would be worse.
