I’m trying to play H.264 videos I’ve made with AC3 5.1 audio on my new WDTV Live player- they are in MPEG-2 stream files (.M2V). The files are generated from Adobe Media Encoder using a Blu-Ray profile. When I try to play them, I get a stereo downmix out the HDMI or the optical digital out. I know the files are OK, they work fine in 5.1 on a Sony PS3 or if I make a Blu-Ray disc from them.
Will the WDTV live play 5.1 AC3 in anything but a MKV container?
