HLS Stream Tester with Stereo/DD tracks failing to start
I have encoded a title and provided the necessary parameters per the HLS spec on how the audio EXT-X-MEDIA should be named. When launched, the stream tester starts up but eventually throws a generic 'Video PlayBack Error": An unexpected problem (but not server timeout of HTTP error) has been detected. Trying to understand how to debug this or capture some more detailed response from the stream tester app. I presume it's something to do with the DD track, but no idea as to what would be the issue.HLS
Test Device: Roku 3090RW - Roku Express
Software: 10.5.0 4208-AE
HDMI connection to an monitor with internal stereo speakers.
Re: HLS Stream Tester with Stereo/DD tracks failing to start
@renojim If I play back the title on a device that supports 5.1 audio (the 2nd audio output) it works fine. The particular Roku devices I test with are a Roku Ultra (4800) connected to a 5.1 capable receiver, Roku Express (3930) and Streaming Stick+ (3810) connected to a monitor with stereo speakers.
I am not sure what part of the process the express/stick devices are having an issue with causing it to crash.
