Where can I find a 5.1 surround test MP4?

I've been googling for hours, I can't believe how hard this is to find.

I want to find a mp4 video test file, to test that my media player is outputting sound to the speakers correctly. Not just a 5.1 movie or clip, but an actual test file that isolates each speaker individually, like front right, rear left, rear right, etc.

I thought hundereds would be on google, but I can't find even one. all I could find after hours of searching was some old divx file from around 2007 that wouldn't play right, and some wav file (I'm looking for a video file though, because I'm trying to test the sound is working right in video playback).

I tried ripping ones off youtube, but they aren't working correctly, and I don't trust them anyways, I think the 5.1 probably got lost somewhere after being uploaded to then ripped off youtube. I even searched torrent sites. I've seriously searched for hours to find this seemingly simple thing, a quality 5.1 speaker test video, hopefully in mp4 format, and I'm empty handed.

Anyone know where I can find one? Thanks.

does it have to be mp4? or are you just looking for a 5.1 test


I didn't look very long, but found this:
you'll have to click the link in the description to get the 'real' test. it's in m2ts format

Finally got those to work. they were in .vob and .m2ts format, which wouldn't play right with all players, but played fine in xbmc and allowed me to test everything out. Thank you.
