Be aware, though AACv1 hss way worse efficiency, then both HE-AAC and HE-AACv2 (both usually bo by aacPlus as a brand name)
Though, chrome is actually supposed to work with aac and aac-plus on windows only when it's insode an mp4 container and not when transmitted without any container .
Thanks Mastacheata, I'm editing my answer since I've been doing some trial and error and I see the audio plays fine inside a container like the following:
<source src="xxx.aac" type="audio/mp4" />
I tested in Chrome (Android and Ubuntu) and also in Safari. The stream played smoothly in the three platforms.
