Is AAC+ supported in Blackberry Bold 9700?

Hello,

 

I wanted to know if the AAC+ format is supported on OS5.0 Bold 9700 phones. When I call javax.microedition.media.Manager.getSupportedContentTypes(“http”), I get the following list of audio types:

 

audio/midi

audio/mpeg

audio/x-wav

audio/amr

audio/basic

audio/x-gsm

audio/mp4

audio/aac

audio/x-ms-wma

audio/flac

audio/ogg

 

None of the AAC+ encodings appear to be this list. Does this mean that AAC+ is not supported?

 

In the absence of an AAC+ content type, I am having to set the encoding to audio/mpeg or audio/aac in the music streaming app we are developing for a client but our client is reporting a sound quality fall off in the high end (> 16 KHz) of the spectrum. The incoming audio is encoded in 64 Kbps AAC+.

Yes, it is supported.  You can see a complete list of supported audio and video formats here:  http://docs.blackberry.com/en/smartphone_users/deliverables/18349/711-01774-123_Supported_Media_Type...

Thanks Mark. So should I set the content type to audio/mp4 for handling AAC+ encoded streams?

Setting the contentType to audio/mp4 did the trick. Thanks Mark!
