[FIX] Fix poor AAC streaming performance (Pandora, Slacker, etc) on Froyo
When I installed Froyo on my N1, I found that streaming quality over Pandora suffered tremendously; low-quality was unbearable, and high-quality sounded worse than low-quality normally does. The change to StageFright from OpenCore is to blame here, while it improves HTTP streaming, it's AAC decoder doesn't decode LC-AAC streams properly.
To disable it temporarily, use
adb setprop media.stagefright.enable-player false
and restart any applications actively playing anything. To disable it permanently, pull build.prop
from /system and change the value there. When you restart, it should be disabled; use adb getprop
Of course, the phone needs to be rooted for this to happen, as r/w access to /system is required.
