AC3 audio hiccups/interruption at the start of every chunk
We've got some VOD content encoded with h.264 and AC3, and it plays over HLS through Wowza. However, the audio has a tiny hiccup at the start of every chunk. It's noticeable enough to be annoying, the audio just stops for a split second, then continues. Checked the logs, nothing but the normal connect, create, play events.
When playing the file directly from disk, the audio is fine. It's quite obvious that this hiccup happens at the start of the chunk; changing the chunk size also changes the interval between the hiccups. With a keyframe interval of 2 secs in the file, we've tested with chunkDurationTarget of 2000, 4000 and 8000. And the hiccup thus appears every 2, 4 or 8 seconds.
Can you please open a ticket for this issue. Please include the usual zipped /conf and /logs folders as well as the content with the issue for testing purposes. Also include a link to this thread as reference.
