Video stops playing fixed

Show stops playing

Source video is file extension rm with rv30 video / cook audio, device is chromecast.

It transcodes to hls to chromecast. Makes all segments but sound goes out at same spot chromecast gives out.

Source file plays fine on my pc locally.

After re-encoding with ffmpeg to x264/aac, the audio corruption is gone and I can watch it on serviio fine.

They are old files I always watch, it freaked me out when one didn't work.

I am getting a new drive when I have the extra money and hopefully won't have any more problems.

I doubt serviio caused it the files have been copied and renamed and moved a lot over the years.

Getting new hardware soon, just had a power outage last night and worried about more corruption.

TLDR; if it doesn't play reencode to mp4

Re: Video stops playing fixed

Thanks I did try that and same result.

The latest static build.

I think there is corruption because at the exact spot the audio messes up when watching on pc in media player classic, there is a slight mosiac for about a quarter of a second. It was only one file so far but my house just had a lot of power outages with the server on so hopefully no more.

I just posted in case it helps someone else with the same problem.

It drove me crazy for about 12 hours trying to get it to play. thanks!
