Yes it would be this helps us narrow down the problem.

So it looks like the audio track is out of spec at least for AC3 stereo files using that program.  What you can try now is converting the file again but this time choose AAC or MP3 to use.  Maybe that won't have the issue. Obviously the best solution is not to produce files that have out of spec tracks. :)

Meanwhile @ebr, can try and duplicate results to see if there is anything internal in the app that can be done but of course will depend on what the issue is.

Converting a file using AAC instead of AC3 does fix the stuttering issue on the shield.

I thought it might. So at least you have a work around with your chosen conversion program.  It's not unusual to find a specific codec that some program gets incorrect when not relying on ffmpeg.  A lot of conversion programs are wrappers around ffmpeg which makes is more of a known entity (good or bad).

The scripts I use all revolve around using ffmpeg and Nvidia GPU for conversions.

Yea, I'll definitely use AAC for future conversions.

Is there any way to fix the shield app for current files? Or is the best bet to just repackage any bad file I come across?

We'll take a look at it. Thanks.

It appears from first glance that the audio is out of spec but correctable with a conversion either with ffmpeg or the Shield TV itself. So it can't be to far out of wack.  Unfortunately the android play "Exo" is finicky and doesn't do any type of fixing. But as ebr mentioned earlier we often add our own code when possible and it makes sense.

One of the devs needs to take a look to see exactly what the issue is and then determine if it can be handled.

Not sure if this helps, but I ran into something similar and one of these 3 things usually helped:

1. If set to 4k@60 for display on shield, try 4k@59 or vice versa

2. If using subtitles, try disabling extract subtitles on the fly or transcode throttling on emby server side (although this seems to have been resolved with an emby server update a while back)

3. My tv (a Sony android tv), not the shield settings, had an audio/video sync option that was enabled that seemed to be too agressive, disabling this helped in some cases as well.
