Reason for closing:  Fixed

Now that I moved this file to another folder, where it follows a wma file, I can get it to play, but it sounds very distorted. Third and last file in that folder is the one from  FS#11540 . I cannot start Kapsberger directly in this folder, nor can I switch from the third file to it. Only way to get it to play is to switch from the first (wma) to it. The wma file is too large to upload.

same issue than  FS#11540  ?

You should talk to Buschel on IRC

Just played around a bit with this file. It cannot be played directly, but only directly after a non-aac-file was played…. Not sure how this can be explained…

The distortion itself is very audible and is also occuring with very early rockbox implementations of libfaad (e.g. r27224 shows this error as well). For now I can state that this effect was not introduced with the latest optimizations (though the distortions sound different with newer revisions).

The distortions were introduced with r23967. r23966 plays back flawlessly. I will further investigate…

Just a remark. This file is not playable realtime on most targets as it is an aac-he file.
