AAC+ streams on LG Optimus V refuse to play.

AAC+ streams not working on LG Optimus V on Virgin Mobile. Tested multiple streams. Loops connecting, buffering, connection dropped quickly and continuously. All work fine on Sprint Hero at hand. Example stream: http://www.thestreamcenter.com/pda/search.asp?search=kspn (the aacPlus stream. The mp3 version works fine.)
Seems to be an issue with streaming AAC content only. If you can send error logs to our support email could greatly help! firstname.lastname@example.org

Thanks! and again sorry not explaining how to get the logs!
"The reason some things work and some things don't is because of the format that the app is streaming it in. Let's take WinAMP for example because you used that as your example. If you look at winamp's description, it says shoutcast ONLY works on android 2.2. As you may or may not be aware, Google introduced new audio and video handling in froyo called stagefright. Froyo is the only version of Android that has stagefright.
Ok with the information above, winamp is streaming shoutcast in a format that's ONLY supported by stagefright, which is why it's ONLY supported in froyo (per winamps description). LG disabled stagefright.
Same goes for NPR. The version you'r downloading from the market see's your on 2.2 so it expects stagefright to handle the streaming video. Because LG disabled it, the audio or video your trying to play might not work.
LG has some lib files available for stagefright which is why when it's enabled some audio and video formats continue to work and some audio and video that didn't work will now work. Now on the flip side of the coin, some files that will work with stagefright off will cease to work with stagefright on."
Perhaps not...but I wanted to pass it along.
