Can't play AC3 audio with new Mi Box via Plex- Fixed
Q: Hi, I'm currently having AC3 playback issues with the new Xiaomi mi box with Plex. It appears AC3 Stereo encoded videos will play audio correctly but causes the picture to freeze. Nexus player with same file has no problems. Anything I can do?

You may have also the issue as the above user. Actually, I have also a similar issue where the video will hiccup and then play at what looks like double speed while the audio plays at normal speed. After multiple solution, I found playing the AAC stereo track resolves the issue. And the simple utility is Brorsoft Video Converter.
