The difference between AAC and MP3 streams is the method used to encode them, called the codec. The modern codec is AAC. It’s more efficient and to many people just sounds better even though it doesn’t use the same amount of bandwidth as MP3. The AAC codec is mobile-friendly and works for most devices.

HLS: Some browsers and players, like VLC and QuickTime, will natively play an HLS stream. iTunes will not play it, but you can use this HLS stream URL in some apps as well. Our HLS stream is the highest quality stream we provide.

Thanks for listening to the TMX on whichever digital platform you prefer. If you happen to be in Austin, Texas, tune in to 98.9 HD3 for the over-the-air broadcast of the Texas Music Experience. Feel free to send along your suggestions or questions as well.
