        Hello

         

        We have a HLS stream with two audio variants, both in aacl, one with 2 channels, and the other one with 6 channels. When trying to validate it with the streamvalidator we got the following MUST FIX:

         

        1. Supported multichannel audio formats are: Dolby Digital (AC-3), and Dolby Digital Plus (E-AC-3)

        • Rendition #5

         

        But the playback on iOS using the AVPlayer is working with no noticeable issues. Can you please detail where is this limitation coming from? Supported at what level? Is it a decoder issue? Is it really a must fix? What are the potential risks of ignoring it?

         

        Thanks
