SHOUTcast v2.6 with AAC+ bugs

Hello! We detected a problem with SHOUTcast v2.6, if you use it in AAC+ it starts to buffer you, and it is reconnecting to 10 seconds, if you use SHOUTcast v2.5 on AAC+ it goes smoothly without interruption.

The reason is this message:
WARN [Licence sid=2] Format is not MP3, where only MP3 is allowed
in logs.
I´m using Centova and now have this problem with v2.6.

Do you also own Premium?
If not, you can stream to 128 kbit/s. As well as only on mp3.

You don't need a premium if you don't use an authhash and you don't want to be listed.

As I was developing support for the Shoutcast V2 protocol for Rocket Broadcaster, I think I ran into the exact same issue you had here with AAC+ and Shoutcast 2.6.

Specifically, AAC, HE-AAC v2 (AAC+), and HE-AAC v1 all no longer work in Shoutcast 2.6. Confusingly, it's unclear if this is intentional or not, since it seems to correspond to Shoutcast.com introducing their "business" plans and I haven't found any official communication about the status of AAC+ in 2.6.

I also found another issue, which that AAC streams are unplayable on the Shoutcast.com
directory website if the streams are hosted by a Shoutcast 2.5 server. Streams are playable if they come from a Shoutcast 2.4 server. I think this one is more clearly just a bug. I was unable to test this case for Shoucast 2.6 since AAC is universally broken in that version.

I think these quirks are going to cause so much confusion for Shoutcast users that I even put them in my official Streaming Server Compatibility documentation. I also reached out months ago to the Shoutcast support team about these issues and never received any response.

Yes, getting error,
"stream detected AACv2, LC (2), 22050hz, estimated 96 kbps WARN [Licence sid=1] Format is not MP3, where only MP3 is allowed"

with Shoutcast DNAS/win32 v2.6.0.753 (Apr 25 2019). It will no longer serve the stream. I reverted back to and it works correctly.

Does version 2.6.0 no longer allow AAC+ streams?
