I assumed for the longest time that SomaFM AAC streams (1+ year?) were just down since the links (even direct ones) just crashed or froze musicbee. They worked previously. But then I tried them in Foobar and they work fine.
Problem: Musicbee is unable to play AAC format radio streams, of any bitrate.
They don't error out, they seem to freeze or crash the audio codec so that the application has to be restarted. The error log is empty.
Oops. Solved with bass_aac.dll file added. Thanks. Hopefully this post will help other confused souls.
Would it be possible for musicbee to give an indication/error to user that a codec isn't working rather than just freezing?
