It’s the Roku media player app which I use to watch videos off of a hard drive. It was working fine up to updates OS. Now when you play a file a while noise is heardover the audio. I tried the hard drive on another device and it works fine so it for sure the media player app with the OS update.
I reset the roku box but got the same result. It is easy to reproduce for me as it does it anytime I try to play movie from USB port.
i hopes this helps and can be fixed as the family uses this a lot.
I noticed the same problem after the OS upgrade on the 15th - this is maddening. Nothing can be done about this?
You can reprocess videos through a tool like HandBrake and remove audio tracks that are AC-3 format. I did this for a couple videos and they now play fine. The drawback is that Handbrake takes on the order of an hour to process each 1 GB of data.
On my Windows 10, I have another tool called "MediaInfo" that lets me right click on a file to see what formats and codecs are in a media file. The pattern I noticed was that all my files that have AC-3 audio get the white noise. They played fine before the 10.0.0 upgrade. Those that have AAC or DTS audio tracks, without AC-3, continue to work.
