parsing of AC_4 audio codecs

Jai Soni
Hi All,

I am trying to play MP4 file with AC-4 audio track in it. Looks like like Qedemux is not able to undetstand the AC4 audio format.
Looked at the qtdemux file, there is no handling of AC-4 format in it.Digital Silence is observed while playing this file.
So to support this format and play this mp4 file, what is the right approach: extending the qtdemux or writing the ac4 parser & connect it to qtdemux in the pipeline? can someone please clarify.
 
Also is there any spec/documentation available for this?
Thanks for help.
Thanks Jai

There is no support for ac-4 at the moment in gstreamer either in demuxer(qtdemux, tsdemux etc). or parser, or the decoder(avdec). One will have to wait till this support is available

Hi Jai,

You can survey what is required to support AC-4 format via Spec document.

(ETSI TS 103 190: Digital Audio Compression (AC-4) Standard)
For about parsing at qtdemux layer, please refer Annex E: AC-4 in the ISO BMFF of upper doc.

Regards.
