Chalk me up as another user that has run into this issue. Seems in the past week or so, almost all downloaded mkv files will not play audio. Older downloads before the author "upgraded" still play fine though.
I just installed the latest mplayer, but that did not appear to have corrected the issue. Does media server need a restart for the mpl;ayer update to take effect, or do you need to reboot?
Is ps3 media server being updated to work around this, or is it an issue that cannot be corrected? Remuxing all hi def downloads for everyone really makes no sense at all.
I'm rebooting to see if this update works. If not, how do you use mkWDclean? I'll google looking for instructions, but it would probably be good to have them echo'd here a well.
(If I find some, I'll report them here.)
EDIT: Here are instructions for mkclean use. It suggests getting the player fixed which might be out of scope for ps3 media server developement, since it calls external installed players. Maybe someone can suggest how to setup ps3media server to work with a working up to date player?
Easiest MKclean Use:
unzip the mkclean application, and move the folder to your c:root
rename the folder to "mkclean" if it does not already have that name
open a command prompt window
(In win7, its accessories/command prompt)
type in cd c:\mkclean
then type mkwdclean xxxxxxx
(where xxxxxxx is the filename of the file you want to clean)
The cleaning takes under a minute here, with a progress % posted.
Once completed, you'll fine a new file in the c:mkclean folder, with a "clean" prefix
added to the name.
Enjoy the working MKV file now on ps3media server!
