Looks like your server is not powerful enough to trans-code on the fly that video.
I know my Android does not support AC3 so it has to convert to AAC.

So you gotta figure out why its trans-coding and go from there.

Thanks for your answer,
I don't know if it helps but I have a synology DS 216play.
Also I have tested it on android, Windows 10(Edge, Windows store app and Firefox),Windows 7 Internet Explorer and on a Samsung smart TV. Maybe I should change from the android forum to general, but I don't know how to do it.
So if there isn't any other solution I probably have to convert the Videos. Any suggestions?
So far I have used Handbrake, but I am always struggling which codec for Audio/media and which Container to use.
Which are you using, or which would you recommend ?
I don't know much about codecs and which are popular. Mpeg-4 or H.264 and which Container ?
I would really appreciate your help :)

For example this video was easily playable on all my devices.
