Ultra - movie playback from usb hard drive sound popping

The title states the issue. Looks like my Roku software was just updated. So I believe the Roku folks created this situation.

Re: Ultra - movie playback from usb hard drive sound popping

Model - 4670X - Roku Ultra
Serial number - YJ003D636500
Device ID - KW9993636500
Software version - 10.0.0 - build 4185-46

I have ripped several dvd's into mp4's and have them on a 4 TB Western Digital My Passport, portable drive. I have the drive plugged into the Roku's usb port. I have watched many movies this way using the Roku Media Player channel/app (current Version 5.5 build 9) and have never had a play back issue. I have plugged the drive into my PC and the mp4 content plays fine. Now when I play any of the mp4 files on the Roku the sound is a 4 click constant repeating rhythm, similar to what an old movie reel would sound like. The video is fine.

Thanks for your assistance

Thanks for the post and providing the information that I have requested.

I have passed along your information to the appropriate Roku team to investigate further. Once more information is available, I'll be sure to update this thread.

In the meantime, would you be willing to send us a sample file of the content that you are experiencing the issue with?

Thanks,
Danny
