PMS can't stream audio files encoded with Fraunhofer AAC

Postby protoxide » Wed Apr 24, 2013 12:18 pm

PS3 Media Server 1.81.0 on Win 7 x64.
Basically it can't send .m4a audio files encoded with the Fraunhofer AAC encoder (bundled with Winamp 5.63) directly to the PS3 without transcoding them to PCM WAV first (with MPlayer).
On the other hand it CAN send .m4a files encoded with Apple iTunes AAC encoder directly.

Windows Media Player Media Server can handle both of these cases properly, and PS3 (v 4.40) will play both types of file.

I attached a small sample. Hope this helps.
If not, then I'll try to get my head around mediafire and upload a larger file.

1.82.0 snapshot causes the Java platform SE to crash everytime I open a music folder on Playstation, regardless of the file type it contains (mp3 or m4a).

I think crashes are unrelated issues of snapshot builds. Unfortunately I don't have windows system to test them.
Can you somewhere upload the full track so I can test if the issues is indeed fixed?

With additional fixes here https://github.com/ps3mediaserver/ps3me ... 4af9b6f92b I can confirm that such files can now be natively streamed.
