The XML format is just text, so you can use Windows Notepad. However, you'll find it much easier to work with if you install Notepad ++. It's free and provides color coding to the text to help understand it all. Then just copy and paste the line I provided where I mentioned.

Working now!!! Thanks so much for your help!

tried changing to the Sony BDP-Sx100 (2013) profile and as expected no sound like before.
I tried putting in the transcoding line <Matches container="*" aCodec="eac3" /> where I thought it should go, but didn't work. Should the same line work with that profile as it did with the 2010 profile?

I'm looking at that profile, and I don't see a good existing place to add it. So, lets create a new one!

  Code:
<Video targetContainer="mpegts" targetACodec="ac3" aBitrate="320" forceInheritance="true">
      <Matches container="*" aCodec="eac3" />
</Video>


Just paste this code directly below the first video transcoding section. Make sure it is outside of the <Video> and </Video> tags. Looking at a fresh Profiles file, add a blank line at line 1310, which is just a comment line now. Paste it in the blank line, then restart the service and give it a try.

Re: No sound

How old is the bluray? I have a pano from 2014 that gives the same error and no sound for some files but chromecast plays them fine. Would be interested in knowing if this works.

Also, I like sublime text better than notepad++ but to each their own..

Never heard of sublime text. Have to check it out. Thanks!
