Synology NAS won't play aac radio streams

Thank you for checking on it. I’m still getting an error when I try to play the https stream. “Playback was interrupted because a track failed to load”.

Strange, it plays ok for me. Are you playing the station from the database or have you entered the url yourself? (Although that worked too.)

I’ve tried both and get the same error

Have you deleted the old station from your my live radio?

yes. deleted from my live radio

Can we just check your codecs…
Can you play
95bfm (flac)
CJSW (aac)

And a reboot never hurts…

Hmmm… the plot thickens. I get error on both of these. Screenshots attached.

Did you do a reboot?
Has anything changed recently?
Can you play to a different endpoint?

Reboot did not fix the problem. Same result when trying alternate end points. No recent changes. Interestingly, I can play other radio stations.

This is not making sense…
How about WRFG - an mp3 station.

What is your core running on?

WRFG plays fine.

I’m using a fairly beefy Synology NAS. Just for grins, I switched to my macbook for the core and everything played fine.

Do you know if there’s a way to make this work with my Synology?

Just realised that 95bfm is down anyway - Sorry about that, it’s usually a reliable station. Can you try H2O instead?

If that’s OK, then the problem is reminiscent of a problem that occurs with QNAP NASs - they won’t play aac files since a recent software update. Has there been a software update to your Synology?

Copying @crieke - Christopher, have you heard anything?

H2O seems to work. Agree. this seems to be limited to aac files when using my NAS as the core. This is sad, because otherwise it has been an awesome solution for a couple years.

What model is it?

DS918+ is the model

Tks. We need to test the ffmpeg version on your NAS, but think it’s best to wait for @crieke or @support which is where I’m moving this thread.

Can you add any extra details about your setup to help them please? Use this link as a guide.

Brian, thank you so much for your help. I’m actually going to move towards a dedicated ROCK setup. Been thinking about this for a while.

Ok, although we would like to get to the bottom of this, and your help will be invaluable.

PS I have a Rock and can thoroughly recommend them.
