Ok I'll give that a try when I get a chance.

I guess I shouldn't say that x264 is the problem now that I think
about it. I was testing using handbrake, and some of my files did work
while others did. I think it depended on the audio encoding I picked.
If I chose AAC, it wouldn't play, if I used MP3 it would. Currently
I'm using meGUI with all the default options, I'll try encoding a file
using MP3 and see how it works.
