streaming aac audio media from anywhere to radiotray opensuse 13.1

Hello there folks,
I am trying to determine if this is an application error or a dependency error or an operating system error. Does anyone have any ideas what could cause this problem? I am trying to stream aac audio radio station through an application “radiotray” and listen but I have no sound.
The following is the error message I receive when attempting to play any aac url. I did install codec’s from packman.

gstffmpegdec.c(2213): gst_ffmpegdec_audio_frame (): /GstPlayBin2:player/GstURIDecodeBin:uridecodebin3/GstDecodeBin2:decodebin23/ffdec_aac:ffdec_aac2: Decoding of AAC stream by FFMPEG failed.

I can play that just fine with Amarok and the phonon-backend-gstreamer-0_10.
Will try with Radio Tray in a minute…

Oops, sorry. It works fine with phonon-backend-vlc (and VLC itself), but not with phonon-backend-gstreamer-0_10 and RadioTray.

So IMHO this is definitely a gstreamer problem…

Why do you keep ignoring the error listed by the progam itself?

Decoding of AAC stream by FFMPEG failed.

Just curious

I don’t ignore it, I try to find out why it doesn’t work.

And it is gstreamer-0_10-plugins-ffmpeg’s fault.

I uninstalled that now and RadioTray plays your stream fine. I’m not sure which package is exactly needed, but as I already wrote in the other thread, I think it is gstreamer-0_10-plugins-bad-orig-addon.

Oh, and btw, I can play the stream with ffplay as well, so it’s definitely no problem with ffmpeg…

Well for crackies, do you mind telling me how you got the stream to play fine?? What is the work around? I think some other people will be interested as well.

Can’t you read?
And you questioned my reading skills in the other thread?! >:)

Uninstall gstreamer-0_10-plugins-ffmpeg and make sure gstreamer-0_10-plugins-bad-orig-addon is installed.
Then it plays fine.

I did not see that anywhere…

Anyway wolfi323 if you were right here in front of me I would punch you in the neck hard.
I am still gonna call you out on this if it does not work.

Then read again:

Are you drunk or something???
What’s wrong with you?

Sometimes you just feel like punching someone in the neck, do you have to be drunk or something? No sorry there is nothing wrong with me, thanks for asking. The neck punch would be a total friendly thing.

So maybe you should punch yourself…

Anyway, don’t you rather want to listen to your f**g internet stream now, instead of threatening me? :stuck_out_tongue:

Sorry what?
Internet stream where?
Was that in the virtual machine I had going on?
Sorry I have already deleted that and moved on to xlinux.

Hi wolfi323, thanks a lot for your solution… it works like a charm! :slight_smile:


Thanks, works on 13.2 as well.
