View Full Version : blackberry devices and aac+ shoutcast 1.9.8 streams

10-31-2011, 04:16 PM
Hello guys, I'd like to know if there is a way to get blackberry devices connect directly to aac+ shoutcast streams, I can do that with mp3 streams through http://myhost.com:port/;stream.mp3 almost any BB device can connect with no problem, so I can use an easy redirect like myradio.com/bb for them, but it seems doesn't work in case the stream changes to aac+, do you have any clue about this? or any other direct(without apps) shorcut to get connected BB devices to shoutcast aac+ streams?

thanks in advance!

AAC requires a special decoder (just like MP3 takes a decoder). From what I know, Blackberry doesnt have a native AAC decoder. Unless I'm wrong, you wouldnt be able to get a blackberry to connect to an aac stream, unless there was an app that could decode it.

Many thanks MarcAlle for your reply! does it happen even in last BB OS 7? no matter whether is shoutcast, icecast or other media server?

The only way that I could see that working would be through some sort of Flash Player which I believe works on OS 7. Again, the Flash Player would need some sort of decoder built into it though. (JW Player works)
