Hello everybody,

 

After updating to the latest iPhone version, I am receiving the below error (within and outside my network as well) when I try to play any mp4 movie that contains an 5.1 AAC audio.

To give you an idea of my setup, I have converted all my movies to mp4 h264 and aac 5.1 so I can use the direct play feature with no problem.

When I access my movies within the Samsung app on my TV, everything is working ok but from the iPhone it only allows me to playback aac 2.0 audio channel videos. Previously I was able of course to stream 5.1 in my iPhone without a problem.

Naturally I am not going to add to every single film I have an additional 2 channel aac, as I prefer 5.1 cause of my home theatre system. I just need to be able to play them from my iphone as well (even though it won't be a real 5.1 through the phone, but that doesn't bother me).

Strange thing is that my nexus tablet works fine with aac 5.1 audio so there must be something wrong with the iPhone app.

Also to mention, I have the "allow video playback that requires transcoding" UNSELECTED as I had it before and that is why I have converted everything to mp4 and aac to begin with (meaning avoid transcoding as much as possible).

Again, I had no issue previously and it still works with my android tablet so I can only thing that this is the iPhone's app bug.

When I ticked back the transcoding option just to see what happens, I have encountered the "transcoding continues on server" issue from another thread below:

so I really don't want to use that feature in any case if possible.

Is there something I can do, to manually fix my 5.1 audio issue or I need to wait for another update?

Sorry for the long message.

 

Thanks in advance,

George
