It has really been a trial and error to find out this. I tried many HD movies (mp4, mkv, etc), with many encoding types, and sometimes doesn't play sound, others the picture, and sometimes neither audio or image.
I figured by now most of the times, the problem is with AAC audio. It only recognizes AC3. But the image encoding it's always a mistery. I never know. I think x264 encoding works most of the times, but there are exceptions.

Isn't there such a thing as a user manual ?
Yes, but it doesn't mention any encoding conditions, bitrates or whatever. Just says it reads mkv, mp4 and avi.
In the quick reading I've done on it....it only reads MPEG2 and Divx/Xvid.
As far as other features go, Philips BDP2700/12 Blu-ray player is quite standard. The file formats supported are MP3, WMA, WAV for audio, MPEG 2, DivX Ultra and XviD for video and JPEG for pictures.
This is the file description of a movie i played and it worked fine (sound and picture)
ViDEO CODEC....- x264
ViDEO BiTRATE..- 2124 kbps
RESOLUTiON.....- 1280 x 536
SETTiNGS.......- MP4 PSP
AUDiO CODEC....- AC3 6 chnls
AUDiO BiTRATE..- 384 kbps
FiLE SiZE......- 2.27 GB
Well methinks that no player would go in to the specific detail of encoding as to the general user that would be akin to water off a duck's back.
The clue is in the words 'blu-ray'. If the video meets the formats of that then it really should play. If it does not then it really should not be called a blu-ray player.
But it's true. This is from Dark Knight Rises, and also works fine:
Video Format......: AVC
Video Codec.......: x264 core 125 r2200 999b753
Bitrate...........: 2 750 Kbps
Frame Rate........: 23.976 fps
Width.............: 1 280 pixels
Height............: 720 pixels
aspect ratio......: 16:9
Bitrate.........: 448 Kbps
Channels........: 6 channels
Sampling Rate...: 48.0 KHz
Wel, the first example you posted is NOT HD in the accepted sense of the word. The second example is.
I didn't encode the movie. At least in my country there are LEGAL websites where we can pay and download movies. That's where i got them.
Movies here are subtitled. Of course audio is in english!
