Some AAC+ files plays in mono

Sandro Antonucci 7 years ago • updated by Jona (Lead Developer) 5 years ago 1
Hello,
using this amazin app I realized that AAC+ streams weren't playing correctly (SBR wasn't applied) so I googled the problem and I read here that using the internal decoding (in beta I KNOW!) will solve it. It did fix it, quality is much better. But then I realized that some streams were decoded in mono (infact it shows 1ch) so I thought I would report this issue. It must be some different encoder those streams use.

By the way why using the phone decoder won't decode the correct way? I tried aac+ files (NOT STREAMS) in Music (standard android app) and the playback is correct.

Thank you

Thanks for your feedback and sorry very delayed response!

What you are seeing is what exactly is being reported by the decoders however there are a couple patches to make sense of this data that we haven't added and need to be added to show 2ch stream.

In regards to your question about decoding.  Well it's a bit complex.  The way in which AAC is played from a file is different than how is played live from the internet.  This is a bug on Android OS decoding properly AAC.  Some phones have hardware decoders for AAC and do a great job decoding while others use the Android OS decoders which had bugs on it.  Latest versions of the Android OS I believe have this issue resolved.
