[Platform_Android] AIR for Android - Streamed audio playback issue on android devices or in general in AS3
AIR for android (or in general AS3) fails to play Internet Radio Stations having URL in formats:
1. http://server_name:portNumber and
Steps to Reproduce:
Write AS3 code to play streamed audio using URL of type 1 & 2 as mentioned in problem description.
For example use "http://stream.radiosai.net:8008" (type 1) and compile .apk (for android) and run it on any android device having AIR runtime installed. Otherwise directly use the 'Test Movie' in Flash Professional CS5 IDE.
Actual Result: Audio is not playing at all. On checking for 'soundObj.isBuffering' always returns true and never comes out of that.
Expected Result: Streamed audio must be played from the URL specified (All the links used by me were for .mp3 streams only)
Any Workarounds: No. FYI : same URL (or URL of type 1 & 2) works in AS2 even one published for Flashlite 2.1 on Flash CS5 IDE

I developed an iOS app with streaming audio. Then were requested to make an Android port and stumbled into this bug, Really annoying.

You've really stabbed us in the back with this one. This is what we get for being loyal? Well, I think it's time to move on.

I wish to create an application for streaming radio on Android, but this bug is not really possible!

I'm also developing android app using AIR, which app access to SHOUTcast sites. I think it's not voting issue or adobe wants to know my financial loss?
Why it's available on iOS and blackberry? It means it's not from any security reasons. At least, I want to know any resolution or way to get SOUND on Android!! Flash doesn't have same trouble. Is it better to change from AIR to Flash? Is it better to build any http local server in it?
I want to have adobe's advice or consultation to avoid this trouble. Thanks.
