Some Roku users experiencing audio playback/dropouts issues with HE-AAC/AC3 files after Roku OS 10 update (workaround inside)
Roku offers many streaming players and smart TV devices making it one of most used brands. However, several issues have been spoiling the user experience lately.
As per several reports, Roku users are facing issues related to audio playback/dropouts with HE-AAC/AC3 files.
It seems that the issues started occurring after the Roku OS 10 update. Some users are even reporting that they are hearing loud clicking/buzzing noise in the audio with Roku Media Player.
However, it is unclear whether these issues are indeed related to Roku OS 10 or not since the OEM hasn’t made any comments on the matter so far.
This is inconveniencing Roku users as they are unable to enjoy the content which has HE-AAC/AC3 audio format because of these playback/dropout issues.
Since Roku has not yet acknowledged or addressed the issue, users seem to have found a workaround on their own.
It appears that changing the Audio mode for Roku devices on which the said issues are occurring from HDMI to Dolby Digital is resolving the problems for some users.
While this is not an official workaround or a permanent fix, it is still worth a shot until Roku decides to fix the problem.
So, if you are also facing the issues related to audio playback/dropouts, be sure to try the workaround given above.
Also, let us know if the said workaround fixed the issues for you or not by dropping a comment below.
Hopefully, Roku looks into this matter and soon provides a proper fix for the said issues.
That said, we will report back with more details as and when we get new information to share so stay tuned.
