mp3 playback on 7.0 build 9021 broken

Liberty News Radio is not functioning after the 7.0 update. It's been running for a couple of years without update. I'll paste code if it helps, but it's not a change in the backend as the Roku is receiving the URL to the stream.

Is there really a semicolon in that URL? Maybe the 7.0 firmware doesn't like that.

Re: mp3 playback on 7.0 build 9021 broken

  • Are you sure it is MP3 playback that is broken and not some other format?

  • Does your source code specify streamformat="mp3" or leave the firmware to guess?


What I know has changed in 7.0 is that for example if you specify an invalid stream format like "aac" then it no longer falls back to mp4, so perhaps if you don't specify mp3 then it isn't auto-detecting? I know this because part of my Musiclouds channel is now broken due it failing to fall back to "mp4" when the invalid "aac" format (as opposed to "es.aac-adts" which is a valid streamformat) is specified, my bad.

That was exactly it. Thanks Joel.
