Audio Profile issue - JB Radio2

I am trying to play an audio stream from JB Radio-2 as an online source. The file is a .flac file probably in an ogg container.
(They have other channels aac and mp3 which play fine but I wished to check out the higher resolution channels.)

I cannot get the hi res channels to play natively, but I can get one to play albeit at mp3 resolution by adding within <Online Transcoding>
<Audio targetContainer="mp3" aBitrate="320" forceInheritance="true">
<Matches container="flv"/>
<Matches container="asf"/>
<Matches container="rtp"/>
<Matches container="rtsp"/>
<Matches container="mp3"/>
<Matches container="mp4"/>
<Matches container="mpegts"/>
<Matches container="ogg"/>


What profile changes will enable me to play the high res streams at high res?


MP3 channel http://cristina.torontocast.com:8007/mp3-320 (this stream plays OK)
AAC channel http://199.189.87.9:10999/aac-64 (this stream plays OK)

Flac 2000 bitrate http://199.189.87.9:10999/flac
live.opus flac http://199.189.87.9:10999/live.opus (this stream only plays with the ogg line above and then as mp3/320 obviously)

There is more info about the streams at http://199.189.87.9:10999/

Can anyone help me with profile changes to handle the two high res streams PLEASE

Surely that would play all my .flac files as mp3 which is not what I want.
The .flac files in my media library play OK anyway.

I need to experiment to play as .flac for .ogg file containers.

AN UPDATE
Adding the following section in <OnlineTranscoding> (but remember to remove the "ogg" line above if added - see above post) will play the audio in LPCM which is the same as .wav and .flac

</Audio>
<!-- Added section to transcode files with OGG container -->
<Audio targetContainer="lpcm" >
<Matches container="ogg" />
</Audio>


It is playing the "JB Radio-2 Opus (ogg) Flac channel" as 16/48.

Re: Audio Profile issue - Radio Paradise flac & quality chan

The above code also plays the quality Radio Paradise channels (https://legacy.radioparadise.com/#name= ... file=links)
- 192k Ogg Vorbis channel
- Flac channel (seems to be 16/44.1) and channel is mentioned in their forums.
I can hear a slight difference over their normal channels but this varies depending on the source content.

Incidentally RP also has a very high AAC-320k channel (not as high as flac) which users may be downgrading to MP3/320 (I understand aac/320 is higher than mp3/320).

The difference (on a good quality broadcast) between mp3/aac, Vorbis and Flac is marginal - but more stations may move to Flac broadcasting in the future.
