Have a couple of shows that freezes after 20 seconds unless I switch from DD to Stereo

Recommended Posts

I know that a while back there were issues with some titles not playing unless the Roku audio was switched from Dolby Digital to Stereo.  For the most part, that issue appears to have been resolved, but I came across a few (3 to be exact) TV Episode (The Walking Dead 3x14 - 3x16) that all stop playing after about 20 seconds.  They play fine in a web browser as well as on a HTPC running Emby Theater.  It also plays back with no issues using VLC.

 

The fix for the Roku for those specific shows, was to change the audio from Dolby Digital to Stereo.

 

I'd be happy to make the .mkv file available if that will help troubleshoot the issue.  The .mkv file is 1280x720 with video bitrate of 384kbps.  Audio is 6 channels at 48 KHz.

i'm not aware there was ever such an issue. have you tried just lowering the app's bitrate setting?

I have not tried doing that Luke.  I have 3 Roku 3's and all are hardwired to the same GigE switch that my Emby server is on.  Bitrate is set to max on all the Roku's as well as on the server end.

 

The Roku's have no issue playing back full BDR .mks rips.

 

That said, I'd try lowering the bitrate on the Roku, although these particular episodes are not all that challenging being about 1Gig in size for a 45 minute episode.  When I switched from DD to Stereo and played the episode again, I did hear a slight click in the audio at the point where the Roku would kick out before.  I should also mention that I start playing from the next chapter, but again, the Roku will kick out after a few seconds when doing so.

it's worth trying just to gather information. one of a few things is likely happening. either something is wrong with the video (vlc example not entirely relevant because that player is built to be extremely resilient), or the roku doesn't actually support the video and we should be transcodnig it anyway, or perhaps the bitrate is too high. yes if you want to post the sample file i can also try it locally.

I changed the bandwidth on the Roku down from 30Mbps to the 3.2Mbps default and changed audio from Stereo to DD.  Streaming stopped at the exact same spot as before.

 

Here's the service log from that incident:

I think you may be referring to the issue that the roku will only pass through DD if it is the second audio track and the first is stereo

Those errors don't mean much from the server's standpoint. All they tell us is that the client hung up the phone because it ran into something it didn't like. I notice it's direct streaming with a bif file. for testing purposes you could try removing the bif file then playing again just for the purpose of ruling that out as a problem.

I deleted the bif file, changed from Stereo back to DD, and the video stopped the same spot again, about 20 seconds in.

 

I'll send you a pm with a link to the sample file I have been testing with.

 

Thanks!

Ah yes, now that you mention it, I believe that was indeed what I was thinking of.

To me it looks like the subtitle is killing the stream.  The video stops at/around first subtitle mark and I don't have subtitles enabled.

what are the languages of the audio and sub tracks, and what are your user language settings under playback?

Guess I was wrong "Play default" checked.  Will test again without it enabled.

Same result unchecking play default.  But removing the srt subtitles, the video plays fine.

i played it with no problem at all. the issue is for you guys it's taking a long time to extract the subtitles out of the file, and for it's a split second. the only real solution then is we're just going to have to have those subtitles burned in.

But why would subtitles matter if they are not enabled?

What you did does not disable them

Before selection play subtitles were set to no in app interface also.

ok, thank you. i will have to look at the app, but in order to get them to default to off you need to change the Subtitle Mode setting, since you currently have no audio language preference set that means even eng is considered foreign.
