Work is progressing on DReaM's ability to decode xHE-AAC broadcasts. Really, it's way past time for broadcasters to adopt it instead of ancient AAC+

About a month ago, Julian posted an updated version of DReaM for the Windows 64 operating system. Ensure you download the HELPER FILES, i.e. the QT Multimedia libraries for SVN 1077 of DReaM as well. * Evidently, DReaM is moving away from Pulse Audio to QT Multimedia for audio. Hopefully, Julian can release an updated version of DReaM soon for enabling xHE-AAC for transmission as well as reception. Currently, the FDK library which includes MPEG-D capability, i.e. USAC or xHE-AAC, is version 2.

* Evidently, the HELPER FILES do NOT include the binaries, just the project files for compilation with Visual Studio which most listeners probably won't have available. I guess you could try Microsoft's Visual Studio 2017 community version to compile these project files. So, most of us will probably have to wait until Julian addresses these current problems.

The forthcoming DReaM will be significantly different internally from older versions which is good. Personally, I've had nothing but problems with ALSA's polling of devices on previous versions of DReaM. Users of older versions will be forced to update or buy dedicated xHE-AAC SW radios. Although potentially more expensive for some, these changes to DReaM's code should be better for everyone. Getting rid of FAAD is just one example.

Could you please be more specific?
Expensive?
Having to pay for something?

No, you shouldn't have to pay for anything as long as you upgrade to the latest version of DReaM. The current development versions of DReaM are naturally incomplete while Julian works on them so it'll be awhile until users have a workable and reliable version of DReaM. I'll let the readers of this forum know when ready if someone else doesn't do it first.

thanks for the info.
btw: I just tried the Ubuntu version and also got stuck:
Code:
$ sudo apt install qt5-qmake qt5-default libsndfile1-dev libfftw3-dev libhamlib-dev libz-dev libpulse-dev libpcap8-dev libpulse-dev libpcap-dev libopus-dev libspeexdsp-dev libqt5svg5-dev libfdk-aac-dev [sudo] Password for user: Packet lists are read... Done The dependency tree is created. Status information is read in.... Ready Note: "zlib1g-dev" is selected instead of "libz-dev". E: Package libpcap8-dev cannot be found.

Yep,

IIRC, I received a similar error when attempting to compile a recent development version. In your case, the pcap library is apparently missing.

More snapshots released on March 31st, but are probably not worth the effort experimenting according to Julian. He is still working on stabilizing the 2018 branch of DReaM before continuing work on the 2019 branch which will eventually decode xHE-AAC broadcasts. The 2018 branch uses FDK to decode HE-AAC+, but not xHE-AAC.

Julian released a new Windows dream.exe executable this weekend under the SNAPSHOT folder at Soureforge. It's probably without any GUI, just command-line only.

I tested this latest release from Julian and it seems to decode HE-AAC+ alright with a previously recorded file. I receive a lot of "other error 4005" errors in the terminal, but it does decode. I didn't have any strong live streams to produce audio from this latest release of DReaM, but I did see some output in the terminal regarding changes in sampling rates.
So, well done, Julian as FDK does seem to decode HE-AAC+ streams.
