    Ok, so I handbraked the file to a low complexity version and added a 2ch audio as well as leaving the 5.1 although the 5.1 as an AC3 (could not seem to get Handbrake to give me a AC MAIN output).

    Still using the normal profile I tested the 2ch and it plays without transcode fine, when I select the 5.1 on the app and play it triggers a transcode and plays fine too.

    Not sure if this suggests its the Main rather than LC format that doesn'nt get transcoded.

    I am struggling to find any examples of or be able to create an AVC/ACC Main in 2ch to test with.

    Did you include the embedded subtitles or leave them out?

    Hi, I left them in, two subtitle embedded text elements. Just rechecked and retested to make sure.

    It may have been a problem with the main video then.

    Thats what I am thinking too, I think my only option is to pre-transcode or convert all my main files to lc.

    Hi, hope all at Conceiva are safe and well

    I know this is an old thread but my streaming to Chromecast issues persist as more and more seems to be encoded in a similar way and refuse to play.

    Details of the file are below.

    Still get the issue that the Chromecast shows the Mezzmo screen, but nothing plays, when I pre-transcode it tells me its already compatible. I select the bold options but still no joy.

    On the same PC if I simply drag the file to Chrome it starts playing, right click, cast, select the TV and it works!

    Now I know I could do this but its annoying. I have to do this for each file i want to stream. Not really a problem when its just one movie i want to watch but a pain running through several 30 min tv files, especially if I want to watch whist using home gym.
