All ok here @anon55914447. Did you try the mp3 stream?

Hi Brian

I tried the mp3 streams for 6 Music and Radio 3. These both worked.

Couple of questions therefore:

  • Is there any special reason the AAC streams are kaput?
  • Can we get alternatives for 5Live, 5LiveSportsExtra and LBC because they’re only listed in AAC format.

Only if you have a Qnap. I was just trying to narrow things down.

5live and LBC done. 5 live sports extra proving awkward. Let me work on it.

Can you try radio 5 live sport extra please? I’ve added an mp3 stream, and I know it works, but Roon insists on playing the aac streams for me.

Cheers Brian. Just had to go out so will try it later. Sports Extra not a priority.

Checking, it looks like you do run a Qnap. In which case your .aac codecs are disabled. See this thread, @crieke has kindly offered to help

Is there a documented codec install I can use to get AAC working on my QNAP? I swear I never used to have a problem with AAC radio streams.have we changed the back end?

Posts crossed! Yes, QNAP update, not Roon, upset things.

3 posts were split to a new topic: RTE Radio streams cutting out

Aha, thanks. I’ll read up later.

Brian: Sadly, we seemed to have lost KWPQ 103.3 Blues & Jazz. The link no longer seems to work. Thanks!!

Changed the stream. Try now.

Yes! Thanks so much!!


I cannot play any BBC stations now, in any format. Other stations I tried work well.

Qnap TVS 471 BT router, all hard wired cat 5e Meridian 210 and iPad.
Via Bluesound all is ok (BluOS app)

Ok, a reboot and further fiddling makes me think the AAC bug is back. I tried to play local and streamed AAC and failed.
The multimedia Consol app in QNAP recently updated…
I have managed to play MP3 BBC streams

Hmm. Probably the cause, pinging @crieke.


Update, I have re done the ffmpeg update with a putty session and AAC is working again for me.

Hello again @naryfa_lakshpa, I’ve removed that old JB Radio2 stream (it was still broadcasting, but presumably it will cease at any moment). The new one has been fine since November.

Please check this station. Roon cannot “load track”
