    I don't use aac audio format much, but discovered that this codec is not supported in 2.2 on my Nexus One. I found some obscure references on the web to switching to a new audio framework called "stagefright", but I can't find much out about this. I wouldn't have known about it myself if someone I know with a Nexus One hadn't run into it.

    Anyone have a line on this? :confused:

    nope, just tested it on frf91. 256kbps AAC files from the iTunes store play just fine.

    Remember, though, that not all AAC files are supported. For example, HE-AACv2 is only supported up to a bitrate of 160kbps. See the N1's specs (link) for details.

    Yes, plays iTunes store files just fine, but doesn't play a standard aac file, which it used to in 2.1. Not a big deal --as I said, I only discovered it trying to help someone else-- but strange as it's a fairly standard codec.

    None taken. Yes, I have. These were files that worked fine in 2.1. :)

    Since it isn't actually my problem (I don't use aac, I borrowed the problem from a friend who was trouble shooting), I'll let it go for now and let him post about it. ;)

    I counted on support for HE-AAC+ when I transcoded several dozen Gb of my 192kbps MP3s to under 6Gb of 32kbps HE-AAC+ when I was back on Android 2.1 on my N1.

    Well, there are two bug reports tracking the problem.

    Issue 9322 - android - AAC support in 2.2 Froyo - Project Hosting on Google Code
    Issue 9308 - android - eaac+ and aac+ decoding sound quality problems (Android 2.2) - Project Hosting on Google Code

    I'm no hardcore coder, so I'll have to be patient and listen to low-quality audio until a fix is issued.

    I use my phone as an alarm clock. I like to set songs to wake me up. When I updated to 2.2, my songs stopped working therefore my alarm didn't make any noise. How is this not a bigger problem than it is?
