I’ve been using the WD-TV Live Hub for a couple of months now, and never had a problem with audio sync before. I have recently changed the way I encode my files on handbrake though, and was wondering if this problem could be addressed.
Now before I go any further I want to inform you guys that the file plays fine on my PC with VLC, and no audio sync problems.
One thing I noticed is that the first couple of seconds of the audio doesn’t play on the WD-TV Live Hub, while on my PC with VLC it plays it fine… audio doesn’t get cut off.
Here are my settings for handbrake, maybe you guys can see what’s causing the problem with the WD-TV Live Hub player.
Video is in the MP4 container.
Picture: Keep Aspect Ratio - On
Cropping - Auto
Filters: Detlecine - Default
Decomb - Default
Video: Codec - H.264 (x264)
Framerate (FPS) - Same as source, variable framerate
Quality: Avg Bitrate (kbps) 2980, 2-Pass Encoding - On, Turbon first pass - On
Audio: AC3 Passthru
Since I’m on the nightly version of handbrake, there’s this new option that dumbs down the advanced tab, and breaks certain features down, here’s a screenshot of that and my settings for it: http://puu.sh/20J5R
Here’s video/codec info on the video file that’s giving me trouble (converted by handbrake)
