I wrote my XML file here: https://pastebin.com/Ta54uZji

But, after running it gives the error:
ezstream[28007]: aacstream.xml[14]: stream (default): format: unsupported
stream format
ezstream[28007]: aacstream.xml[38]: encoder (aac-encoder): format:
unsupported stream format

I probably don't have the encoding command correct, but not sure what to do
about line 14 error.
