Select the text view, cut/paste the entire analysis. Hide the file name if you like, but it is helpful to see the rest.

Re: No audio on some mp4 video

What are the audio settings on the Neo? Are they set to passthrough? It could be the AAC audio. You could try transcoding the audio to AC3 using VID2EVA.
EVA1 - NTV550 (Wired), HDMI -> Samsung 65" Plasma, Optical Audio -> Denon (AVR-1708) 7.1 Receiver

EVA2 - EVA9150 (Wired), HDMI -> Panasonic 50" Plasma, Optical Audio -> Yamaha (RX-V520) 5.1 Receiver

EVA3 - EVA9150 (Wireless), Component -> Panasonic 37" LCD, 2ch. Stereo -> Sony (STR-391) 5.1 Receiver

NETWORK & NAS - ReadyNAS NV+ (8TB), NV+ (6TB), Duo (2TB), Buffalo NAS (2TB), Netgear WNDR4000 & 3800 Routers, (2) Netgear GS608 Switches. APC UPS.

Re: No audio on some mp4 video

YES that did it, set the AAC to HDMI pass-through, had previously played with these settings back think you have to go right back and replay video to get them to take affect?

anyway, it’s all good, cheers for your help

Re: No audio on some mp4 video

What video player software you use? I advise you to try another one to play the MP4 video like VLC media player ... In addition, you can download klite codec pack from the internet to see if it can solve your problem, as i ever solved the similar problem for MP4 video ripped from a DVD on Mac ...
