Orca - codec info for theme music please?

Orca Sir, I have an issue with my AV amp (nothing to do with Plex) which occurs occasionally when I click on a TV series and the theme music plays. The issue also happens when I play mp3 music from my music collection - also randomly. I was wondering if you can advise me which codec is used when the TV theme music is played - the issue is that my amp sometimes gets confused with the codec (a firmware bug) and plays the sound crazy loud and with massive distortion. I have found youtube app on Smarthub also does this occasionally with sound in videos (guessing a similarity in codec between what Youtube app uses to what your Plex app uses when playing TV theme or music. Can you please let me know what format your Plex app sends sound in for these?

Thanks in advance, Paul

    Theme music is mp3

    Makes me wonder if youtube streams the audio in mp3 also, if it does, then that must be the link. Cheers Orca, Paul
