Playing few mp4 throws malformed data error

Hi there,

My Roku device plays few Mp4 fine, but throws malformed data error on many of them. It doesn't give any further information other than that. I checked the CODEC on both and they are exactly the same:
codec_long_name=H.264 / AVC / MPEG-4 AVC / MPEG-4 part 10

But I am not sure why few work without any issues, while many fail to load. Is there any other parameter that I need to look out for. Any debugging tools or commands that I can use. 
Please help me out.

Thanks,
Bhrami

try this to test your streams, not sure if it will solve your problem though:

Any Update Regarding this issue. I found the same issue with some mp4 stream. I also tried with the http://devtools.web.roku.com/stream_tester/html/index.html. Here I enter one link and clicked on the play button. In the Above display message "launching the channel". I wait some times. But, It does not launched in my device.
