... but can anyone confirm whether the released version of 3.0 supports ac3 in HLS? I can get it working on my Roku2 unit, but HLS streams with ac3 don't work at all on my Roku1 (HD-XR) unit running the latest 3.0 firmware. Just want to know if I should stop try and just put a version check in place.
Have you run your tests under firmware 3.1? Some of us are beginning to speculate that the unsuccessful attempt to support AC3 in HLS in 3.x firmware may be the reason why HLS is not working properly.
Certainly as noted here
the failures of HLS in the beta are pretty much replicated in the released 3.0 firmware that broke my usage and others. 3.1 has some similar failures with HLS, but the audio problems are more notable. This post describes one of the audio problems some are seeing in more detail
firmware v3.0 only will support the HLS CODEC tag for ac3.
HLS requires AAC-LC audio.
