I tried again others ac3 audio codec video and eac3, ac3 never works and eac3 always work.

So the problem is the Chromecast, if i buy an other Android Box, like Nvidia Shield, it should works ?

Well I don't necessarily consider it a problem, that's just what it supports and doesn't support.

 

But yes the Shield can direct play more formats.

I think I'm getting to the root of this issue. I've posted my findings in the thread I linked to. But the Shield will treat you well :)
