The timeline of events for the logs is: I tried to cast "10 Cloverfield Lane" with AC3 audio and it failed. I then tried to cast "10 Cloverfield Lane" again and it failed. I then tried to cast "10,000 BC" with DTS audio and it started playing successfully. I let it play for around 30 seconds and then stopped it manually. I then tried to cast "12 Years a Slave" with AC3 audio and it failed. I tried one more time to cast "12 Years a Slave" and it failed.
