MP3 audio not working in some videos


I have some very old cartoons for my kid (captured from VHS AFAICT). Sound is not working in some of them. I’ve narrowed it down to following audio codec:
ID : 1
Format : MPEG Audio
Format version : Version 2
Format profile : Layer 3
Mode : Joint stereo
Mode extension : Intensity Stereo + MS Stereo
Codec ID : 55
Codec ID/Hint : MP3
Duration : 10mn 35s
Bit rate mode : Constant
Bit rate : 56.0 Kbps
Channel(s) : 2 channels
Sampling rate : 24.0 KHz
Compression mode : Lossy
Stream size : 4.24 MiB (5%)
Alignment : Split accross interleaves
Interleave, duration : 40 ms (1.00 video frame)
Interleave, preload duration : 500 ms

Some files have just a little different codec information:
Mode extension : MS Stereo
Bit rate : 128 Kbps
Sampling rate : 44.1 KHz
Interleave, duration : 999 ms (24.98 video frames)
Interleave, preload duration : 750 ms

The latter works fine. The first kind doesn’t.

Both codecs plays fine on VLC on ubuntu.

Since this is all software decoded, can I install some “driver” on vero 4k to make this work?

This is a weird sample rate, and the bitrate is quite strange.

Can you send me a 20-30sec sample so I can look at this?
If you have an AC3 compatible receiver, enabling AC3 transcoding may do the trick for you.


Unfortunately not, at least it looks like it is not. No audio at all and “unrecognized audio stream” error on TV

I’ve managed to make a 5MB sample but is there any way I can upload it or send it to you?

PM me a Dropbox link if you have an account.

that is the thing, I don’t. Can I “hide” it as jpg or something allowed ?

Edit: I’ve used some random upload site. I’ve PM you the link. It will be valid for 1 day


Same problem here, video with mp3 audio at 24Khz, not working. Works fine on VLC and also works fine on Kodi for Windows.

Any update on this issue ?


I believe this will be resolved in the next update

Let me know if this isn’t the case.
