I am rather curious how you are managing the back-end encoding for these streams, specifically how much re-encoding is done, if the source content is already AAC+. Specifically, I know that you would want to recode any MP3 stream down to AAC+ for streaming, but if the source is already say, 48k AAC+ v2.0, will the audio be passed through without decoding/reencoding and thereby making it sound worse?
I personally have used VLC to connect to an AAC+ shoutcast via HTTP, and output the AAC+ audio as an RTP stream via sdp file and Quicktime/Apple Streaming Server. Is your process in this regard similar? (trans-encapsulation of the same AAC+ bitstream)
Just curious, as if I am able to get a low-bitrate first-generation stream re-encapsulated in RTP/RTSP format for cell playback, I would be extremely happy.
Thanks for the info, and for a great service!
