Wednesday 30th of November 2011
Sonos is said to be bringing an upgraded versions of their remote controller application for Android today. Version 3.6 will reportedly bring support for Android tablets 2.2+, including the Amazon Kindle Fire. We’re not sure if they’ll be creating a tablet-specific interface for Android 3.0/4.0+ but we hope they’ll take advantage of that prime real estate to add some really nice controls.The update is also said to bring alarms, music library management and Twitter. For the overall platform, they’ll be adding Slacker Radio integration and improved Spotify integration (ability to access inbox and play new releases and popular tracks).If that’s not enough, AAC+ format support is here for those of you who prefer it. We can’t find any of this in the market yet but do let us know if you find it a bit later on!

Saturday 10th of July 2010
I just moved over to Android from blackberry. HTC EVO on sprint. I had over 250 songs I bought from the Sprint music store but they are in AAC format. They will not play on the EVO . I called customer service and they said the EVO supports AAC files. Any apps you can suggest that will allow AAC files to play on the EVO? Really don't want to lose all those songs.Sent from my PC36100 using Everything Android app

exFAT or ext3 Support
Friday 04th of May 2012
I have a 32gb Class 10 microSD card I am using with my tablet. I have a few movies that are already in h264/aac format that the tablet can play. However I ran into a issue. These files are 4.5gb in size. The default format for my microSD card is FAT32. FAT32 has a limitation where files cannot be larger than 4gb each. I sought out to see if our tablets support any alternative file systems.. and the results are not promising I used a USB adapter and PartedMagic / gParted to format the card. First I tried ext3, since its linux native and Android is in essence linux so I thought that would work. No luck. After formatting, putting it in the tablet, it states "Preparing SD card for use" then "You may not eject your SD card" messages right after each other and it will not mount.I then did the same, except with a Windows box, and formatted the microSD to exFat. (exFAT is a acceptable use as it supports large files as well and works in MacOSX and Windows which I both use on a daily basis). Pop it in the tablet. Same thing. Reformatted back to FAT32.. works but but no grea

Hii just bought an htc t-mobile g2, it is with android 2.3.3, but I can't play aac music files. I've tried powerAmp, winamp and the default player, all of them don't support the format :'(I've converted them to aac using mediaCoder with 3GPP AAC+ as encoder.
android audio format support- native
Wednesday 23rd of February 2011
im looking at info on android's site for supported audio formats and it looks like aac is not supported past 160 kbps ... which is strange because i can play 256 kbps m4a files on my fone ....i am looking to reencode my entire music library since its been many years since i originally encoded my audio cds into itunes. since, there are new supported bitrates with vbr. i am looking to stick with aac since i prefer it over mp3, but want to know if ill encounter any issues playing back 320 kbps constant bitrate m4a files on the device?i have chosen 320 constant bitrate for quality of sound and least decoding needed to playback as opposed to vbr. i also have an ipod 5g that i use mostly for audio playback of my albums on a high-end car audio system, so i need some compatibility with older hardware ....i wouldnt mind exploring encoders that can give higher bitrates, but im unsure how they will be supported on the phone and the ipod ....anyone knowledgable with audio and android devices? posted via android
Why Galaxy S cannot play H.264 .mp4???
Saturday 30th of July 2011
Hi, I have a question regarding converting .AVI to .mp4. I am running a website and I want my clients to watch videos on my webpage. I converted .AVI to .MP4 with H.264 AAC. Such file is perfectly working on Apple devices such as iPhone and iPad. I am personally using Samsung Galaxy S Captivative and it cannot play the same video format file from the web. When I convert .AVI into .FLV and using HTML5 for the video player, Galaxy S can play .FLV on the web. However, when it comes to H.264 .MP4 it cannot play. "this file format is not supported by the browser" kind of message only displayed. So, my question is, 1. Is there a particular way to convert a video into H.264 .mp4 which can be compatible with iOS and Android at the same time? 2. What kind of method does Youtube use for Android and iOS?My understanding is that they have .flv and .mp4 video at the same time in order to satisfy all of devices. Correct? 3. Does anyone know how to embed .flv and .mp4 files together so that each different web environment can detect the suitable file for playing? I have found that .flv fa
Rdio Android App Update Lets You Turn AAC Audio Quality All The Way Up To 320 Kbps
Thursday 16th of October 2014
The cool kidslike the quality of their music turned up all the way to 320 kbps (the coolest ones prefer lossless), but that's a luxury that goes away with streaming music over the Internet. Rdio says it's had enough with that lower quality crap (I can't really tell the difference, but the cool kids tell me that stuff's awful), so it is bringing in the ability to stream and download songs at 320 kbps over both Wi-Fi and a cellular connection.If you want to hit this level of quality, you will have to become a paying customer, which will cost $9.99 a month (lame, I know). Rdio has also transitioned its entire library of tracks over to AAC (you know, the format the hip kids use). You can check out the press release below for more information, but I've been told only weird people read them.Rdio Music (Playboard) | Rdio Music (Play Store)Rdio Migrates Entire Catalog to High-Quality AAC Audio Across The GlobeFour bitrates available for both streaming music and offline downloadsSAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 16, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Rdio, the groundbreaking music service available in 60 countries, tod
