I’ve got fmod working on an Android device, but the getting started doc doesn’t list the available file formats. I tried playing a .m4a file (works on iPhone) but on Android the debug log says it’s not supported. Also, is there a "best" format we should be using for Android for streaming audio?
- EDIT: I’ve tried .ogg vorbis as well with no luck, but .mp3 works.

Ogg Vorbis should work, but it would be expensive.
MP2 and MP3 are available (good choices for a limited number of music streams).
ADPCM should give good results for SFX.
AAC isn’t supported (only available on iPhone through the iOS SDK).
Our MP3 decoder is more optimizer than our current Ogg Vorbis decoder, plus the Ogg Vorbis decoder uses a lot more memory.
That being said, we are working on an optimized version of Vorbis that will be support in FSB that (when available) will probably be a better choice than MP2 or MP3.
Yes, by ADPCM I mean IMAADPCM.
