Sure - here's one quick way to achieve it:
1. install faad
2. add the following to your ~/.ecasound/ecasoundrc
ext-cmd-mikmod = faad -f 2 -b 1 -s %s -d -w %f
3. play aac file with:
ecasound -f:s16_be,2,44100 -i typeselect,mikmod,foobar.aac -o alsa
... it would take some effort to integrate this directly to Ecasound.
Integrating direct support for libfaad (i.e. not forking faad process
on the background) would take some more work.
All in all, adding support for new filetypes has not been a top priority
item recently, and there's a long list of formats waiting to be added.
Especially FLAC is interesting. I have been hoping that primary channel
for getting new formats supported would be via libsndfile.
