When i play this on blue ray the audio always starts skipping in the same places. After itstarts the lip sinc is way off. The BRD is not scratched at all. Iv never encountered this before. Anyone else have similar problems?

I've had Monster Inc on BD for quite a while and have never had any problems with it. Has it always done this or did it just start?

This happens on my rip of the movie, haven't played the actual disc yet but need to look into it.  Lots of seamless branching on this disc which my guess is where all the audio dropouts are.

It's not Monsters Inc, it is the new Monsters University release.

Intresting. Sounds like your experiencing the same thing. I guess exchanging it for a new copy wouldn't help.. hmmm

This weekend I will try and play the actual disc.  My Blu-ray player is very old and hardly used (I usually rip all movies and play that way). I thought it was a problem with my rip/mux and was going to play around with that, so we'll see what happens.

I had the same problem with my backup copy I burned to disk but the original plays perfectly. Not a clue why.

That sucks because I can't Stand watching it like that. It pretty much is impssible to get into the movie when it happens constantly

Same here. With the TrueHD 7.1 sound track it get audio drops. With the 5.1 TrueHD track I get lip sync is way off. I had to use the DD track. I ripped it with and use the AC3 track only. TrueHD track is messed up. I spent about 30 min. two days ago talking to Disney Tech. I will be sending in my copy to them 3D/ 2D BD so they can check it, and they will be sending me a new copy.

MrFattBill, told me that he ripped the movie as 1:1 ISO with AnyDVD HD, and then used ClownBD to make a M2TS file, and he didn't have any issues. I'm currently following his instructions, and I will report back and see if this fixes the issue.

Got my rental copy of this today, also has audio stuttering/dropout (while pic looks fine), got bad about mid-way through. I stopped it and backed it up at that point and then it went thru the same section just fine. Later on it happened again and I tried a pause and that seemed to help or it was a shorter section...

OP--can you fix the movie title in the subject line?

I ripped with ClownBD as mentioned above and it still has dropouts when playing on my Popcorn Hour.  Playing disc in player has same issues.  Way to go Pixar.  Re-ripping with DD core.

? Looks same to me. After I posted I wondered if it's even possible to change subject titles, I know some forums that is not possible....no biggie but can confuse people about Monsters Inc vs Monsters University.

Why? The movie is Monsters University.....not Monsters Inc. Are you saying you have the audio problems with both movies?

I experienced the same with Monsters University Blu-Ray disc rented from RedBox this weekend. Started with LG player with 7.1 setting and the audio keeps on dropping every few minutes for lasting about few seconds or so. Switched to Oppo 93 minimized the audio drop to 1 second gaps every few minutes. Managed to finish the movie before kids started rioting. At this point I don't know if this something to do with the Blu-ray player software upgrade or the manufacturing defect.

The ONLY audio drop issues I have EVER experienced are with Disney discs, simple as that.

Wall E
Monsters Inc
Monsters U
Finding Nemo etc...

It's simultaneously reassuring and frustrating as hell that they're known disc authoring issues but it's awful trying to get these movies I'm already infinitely sick of watching in the first place.

Sigh.

Me: "Yeah, a case of Diet Mountain Dew walking across my living room."

My copy of MU does the same thing. While watching, the audio will occasionally skip. The picture is fine, and the disk shows no signs of damage. I'm going to request a new disk from Amazon, but it sounds like they all may have it.

Disappointing. 1st time I've had a defective disk.
