  2. 1080p at 60 fps is not supported by by the Blu-ray spec. Some players can play it, apparently not yours. You might try changing the Profile@Level flag to 4.1 to see if you can trick your player into playing it.

  3. Thank you.
    What program would be best to make that change?

  4. First, make a backup copy of your file then try h.264 Level Editor:

    Neither is AAC audio officially supported.

  7. Keep in mind that all h.264 Level Editor does is change the Profile@Level flag. It doesn't change the properties of the encoded video or audio. So the Blu-ray player still may not play the file. Or it may play the file but give jerky playback, stuttering audio, etc.

    If the Blu-ray player can play mp4 videos (not all Blu-ray players can do so) it can probably handle the aac audio. That's the most common audio codec used in mp4.
