I did use your test file. I can play it fine using AAC or MP3 audio
on my iPhone 4 running iOS 5.1.1, but not on my 3GS running iOS 4.1.
The same holds true for other samples I've tried. If I enable MP3
audio for HLS, I can play both your sample and mine correctly on my
iPhone 3GS. I'm not sure if this is a hardware, decoder, or encoder
issue, but am looking into it. For now, you can create a setting
called HLSAACAUDIO set to '0' to disable AAC and use MP3 audio in HLS.
It's not your setup specifically, but I would like to know what you're
using to test, is this iOS, Android, or what?

The code needs a little tweaking to work with libfaac, but even when I
did that and enabled libfaac instead of the built-in AAC encoder, I
still had the same audio issues, so I don't believe it's an issue of
which AAC encoder is being used. That also seems to rule out anything
to do with the integer to floating point audio conversion since libfaac
uses the integer data.

I can't seem to get rid of the warbling on my iPhone 3GS, I tried
skipping around, changing the bitrate, etc.. If there's a workaround,
I'd be happy to find it rather than telling some users they need to
(re)enable MP3 audio for their devices.

I think we're in a pretty good place right now, the main two things
bugging me are the AAC vs MP3 audio on some devices, and the blockiness
at startup. I'm looking into something with the blockiness, so
hopefully I find that soon enough. If you find other bugs, feel free
to post a message and we can discuss. I'd like to get it more usable
and as stable as possible for 0.26.
