Is the Media Browser Roku app more likely to play a video file in Mp4 rather than Mkv? I ask because I am coming across an increasing number of video files that will not play on the Roku app--actually the audio plays fine but there's no picture. These same files play perfectly on Play On, VLC, Windows Media Player and the couple times I tried even on the web version of Media Browser. It seems like the files the Roku app doesn't like are usually in the Mkv format. On top of that I've noticed that if I have a file that plays fine on Roku Media Browser but where the subtitles won't play if I use Mkv Merge to remux the file so the audio stream is identified, the subtitle language is identified and the subtitles are flagged as default there is only a 50/50 chance that the resulting Mkv file will play properly on my Roku 3.
So my question comes down to--are there video or audio formats that Media Browser Roku likes better than others? Is there a higher chance of compatibility with specific audio/video formats?
