HLS Segmented AAC Audio

I havent seen this before but aparently it's a thing
where you have an HLS stream, that does not carry segmented TS (MpegTransport) but rather segmented AAC

This radio stream plays fine in QuickTime - but havnt found how to play on the Roku

$ curl -G "http://glzlv01.vds-is.bynetcdn.com/glz/glz_aac/playlist.m3u8"

Re: HLS Segmented AAC Audio

I don't think there is direct support for AAC 5.1

Re: HLS Segmented AAC Audio

Thanks NML

BTW - Roku Devs - this stream - if attached as HLS to a video player will cause the Roku2 itself to crash

Re: HLS Segmented AAC Audio

It causes a number of devices to crash. Not good for a streaming environment that is somewhat mature

Re: HLS Segmented AAC Audio

It turns out that they switched back from .aac segments to .ts segments so now the stream works

Re: HLS Segmented AAC Audio

We are trying to solve this same issue. Has anyone found any further information? I don't believe it will be possible for my client to use .ts segments as they are using the same manifest for multiple endpoints.
