It's very important for me solve this problem, because I can't play some of voice note received through Mitakuuluu.

I've done several tests, and it seems that this is happening if audio's lenght is <6seg.

I can confirm. I cannot play an audio clip received through Mitakuuluu. Duration: 2s

Any idea is this fixed in the latest update?

I installed from warehouse faad2, gstreamer0.10-ffmpeg-extra, gts-plugins-bad-extra and gts-plugins-ugly all by sailfish_lib and now i can play all aac files (at least i still haven't found an aac unplayable) not sure if they are all needed or if installing only one of them works


some aac unplayable before can now be played, there are still some file unplayable, like the one posted by coderus

Are you still getting HW acceleration for AAC when using those codecs?

i'm sorry, i don't know what HW acceleration is..

ZioBilly ( 2014-05-06 00:26:48 +0300 )edit

it is not working. Can you play file in dropbox?

carmenfdezb ( 2014-05-06 01:12:11 +0300 )edit

well, actually not..

ZioBilly ( 2014-05-06 11:26:00 +0300 )edit

@ZioBilly HW=hardware, i.e. there appears to be hardware acceleration for playing and recording h263-encoded video and AAC-encoded audio (both used by default camera). Do your codecs activate that hardware acceleration? Otherwise battery will drop dramatically when using them.
