I've been using Vortexbox for just a few days, on a Tranquil PC (with an Atom 330 dual core processor). I'm pretty happy with it so far.
My only outstanding problemis how to play aac+ radio streams. This is something I used to do a lot on my previous system (a Qnap TS-109).
I've installed mplayer using the command:
And I installed faad using the command:
yum install faad2
I can now play aac/aac+ files on my hard drive (in files with an m4a extension). However aac+ radio streams still don't work.
It's not a networking problem, as I can play WMA radio streams without any problems. I also have Iplayer and Alien BBC up and running perfectly.
I think it's probably just a matter of adding to the custom-convert.conf and types.conf files. However I can't find any documentation explaining how to do it on this particular system.
Anybody know how to do this.
