(as a first shot, issue is that there is an ES descriptor without
AudioSpecificConfig element in the track header and MediaInfo does not
manage correctly this case; note that this may be the reason some
players does not play sound).
Under the absence of the AudioSpecificConfig element in the track header
do you mean to the absence of the "Format profile" field of the medianfo
output? I've looked at the difference between mediainfo output of this
bad mp4 file and a good mp4 file and I've found that the good one
contains "Format profile":
diff -u mediainfo_output_of_bad_file mediainfo_output_of_good_file:
