AAC-HE

Post by Madoka » Thu Dec 05, 2013 12:25 pm

Recently there was a commit that separated aac into aac and aac-he. However, in the past my mp4s that had aac-he audio streamed ok, with normal audio and sound (not that I had many of the files). Now, UMS wants to transcode/mux those over to my PS3. Here is the mediainfo for one of the files that work ok. Maybe it's the fault of the encoder of the file?

Can you post up a full debug log in TRACE for the Dev's to look at please.

Here you go. The file is called aac-he.mp4. It's muxed over now that SJ fixed that, but streamed ok with 3.1.2.1.

Unfortunately it's safer for us to transcode HE-AAC instead of mux it. It may work muxed in some cases but in the videos I tested, the PS3 didn't support the audio track when it was HE-AAC. So in this case the program is doing what it's supposed to do.
We do need to find that bug where the option for streaming files via transcode folder disappeared though so you have the option
