So I should be good to go by next update? That's awesome, thanks!

And thanks for the heads up about the account info. By leaking, do you just mean it's got my username still embedded in the file? If so, that's okay, I'm not in the habit of sharing the files. Now, if it's scraping it and sharing it some place, I'll stop using it ASAP.

As long as the actual file is not shared, should be ok. But just remember, if mediainfo can see it, so can ffmpeg even when streaming the contents. MrMC does not look at those embedded fields so they should never appear in MrMC logs.

Finally got the latest update and tested. Not quiiiite there yet. If I just start playing, everything seems fine. But if I switch to the mono HE-AAC track, sometimes it plays right away and sometimes it back tracks, buffers, and/or stutters for a bit before getting up to speed. Then it'll play for a chunk of time before pausing the whole video and buffering for a while, repeating this fairy often.

Oddly, once I've switched to the mono track, I can freely switch to the surround again, but now it will periodically buffer too, and won't recover until I completely stop playback.

This is the only 720p Requiem'ed show that has problems. Differences as far as I know are it has chapters and this mono track. Sadly, I ran an update for VLC too, and now that can't play these back smoothly either, where it was fine before.

Any ideas?

I'd need a sample, I don't think we ever tested mono audio handling :)

Where can I post a sample? Smallest episode I've got is 1.47GB.

Are you saying the previous sample has one channel audio ?
I still have that sample.

Correct: original stereo AAC, original 5.1 AC3, and DVD-ripped commentary as a mono HE-AAC.
