Hi Raghavendra,Such usage model of AAC decoder filter is not supported.
Media SDK is a product for video processing and audio filters are provided for compatibility sake. They are intended to be used in chains with Intel Media SDK Splitters - to decode and encode the audio stored in containers together with video.A filter (Source, Splitter) connecting to the AAC decoder must support "push" model of data flow. FileSource likely has different model. You may try experimenting with other Source Filters and maybe find something like SourcePush. Another option is to wrap the video into container and use with a Splitter.Regards,Nina


Thanks for your input. I will try to decode with push source.
