Android TV(Philips 55PUS6501/12) and AC3 audio codec
I am experiencing issues on the Android TV app of Plex.
I noticed that videos with the audio codec AC3 cause the screen to freeze but that AAC, DTS etc work like a charm. I suspect that the Android Exoplayer is unable to play videos with AC3 audio codec but the audio plays because audio pass through is enabled.
I'm capable of playing the exact same video with AC3 codec when streaming it to my Chrome Cast or on the Android app on my phone(Nexus 6P with Android 7.1.2.)
What I am wondering is;
- Is this a known issue, if so, what is the eta of the fix? (if it is going to be fixed at all)
- Is there anything I can do as a workaround to temporarily solve this issue?
I noticed the https://forums.plex.tv/discussion/225584/philips-android-tv-6500-series-2016-model-and-multi-channel-audio#latest threat as well but there seems to be no response at all from anyone from Plex on that specific post.
