Steps to reproduce

When playing a SHOUTcast / Icecast live stream in the Microsoft Edge address bar whose audio format is AAC, the browser, instead of playing the sound, downloads the content infinitely, as if it were an ordinary file.

Test Link:
Expected Behavior: Play the live stream.
What’s wrong: The browser downloads content infinitely, as if it were an ordinary file.

    • Thanks for the report. The workaround for this issue is to create a simple wrapper HTML page with an AUDIO element that points at the target URL.
