Full Version: No audio playback in Youtube downloaded video files

Just installed Kodi 18 (June 17th build), but that was the first one I installed on my Windows 10 NUC PC, so I can not say if an older build worked. Everything plays brilliantly, except for any Youtube downloaded files (which I use JDownloader2 to download). The video plays fine but there is never any sound. It shows up as AAC but also shows up as UND under language in Kodi. It is not a problem with AAC in general because every non-youtube video I have with AAC plays fine. Also those YT videos play fine outside of Kodi on the PC, so I have the correct codecs on my PC. This is the only annoyance stopping me using Kodi as my dedicated player, as I download a lot from YT to watch offline. My old Dune HD player can play them fine, but I want to ditch that now. Any ideas ? Great work on everything else guys.

Here is a royalty free video clip for anyone to test that (it should have music playing) was downloaded from YT that won't play any sound (same as others) : http://www.storespace.net/royaltyfree.mp4

The linked sample plays fine on my Mac.
Plays fine on linux using kodi.

Hint: No Debug Log no issue
Linked sample works for me on my windows 10 computer using kodi 18 64-bits
Thanks for testing guys.

So what does this mean then ? If it works on someone elses Windows 10 64bit machine then where could the fault lie ? It can't be my amp because if I just minus down Kodi and then play the exact same file in Windows 10 it plays out of the amp fine. Also any other video files play fine in Kodi. I have put the Log below. Any ideas ? Thanks.
