No sound for some files

I attempted to play some USB videos on my daughter's Roku Ultra model 4660X2. Unfortunately, quite a few of them didn't play with sound, and showed NONE for video format (using Roku's media player). These files play perfectly on various computers and on Android boxes running Kodi. In fact, when the drive was connected directly to her TV, the problem files played w/o error. Other than transcoding any files I take to her home, is there a Roku workaround?

No. But if you stick to h.264 video encoding and ac3 audio you should be golden. Actually, aac audio IF its only 2ch. There are a few great freeware programs to make these right.
