Roku HLS Issue

Hi Guys,

I have this HLS url that works on my iPhone, however I cannot get it working on roku using the SimpleVideoPlayer example. When I click play it starts to retrieve video but it stucks there and I just have a blackscreen with no sound.

Do you guys know why this happens? How do I debug and fix it?

Thanks

That stream uses MP3 audio. The Roku only supports AAC for HLS.

Thanks TheEndLess,

I read somewhere that it does not support mp3, but that is like long time ago. So it does not support even with latest SDK and Roku 2 XS (this is what I have)?

Is there anyway I can get this working?

Did you get this working? I'd be very interested in knowing your solution if you did.
