so i'm playing with my sb-live + 4speakersm, oss, alsa9 etc.
when i'm playing an ac3(5.1) movie, ac3 5.1 means that it contains 6
(5?) mono audio channels. correct?
and when specifying -channels_4 those 6 channels get correctly downmixed
to 4, or just 2 channels get ignored?
i'm trying to use the sp/dif on my sb-live ( -afm hwac3 ) ( with no
success for now :-) ....
so let's assume it would work...
now that means that i send the ac3 data directly to the card. correct?
but now how does the card know if he should create 6channels or
4channels? ( maybe this is not mplayer's problem, but maybe someone can
answer this )
3.did anyone got sp/dif work on a sb-live? i've read the archives,
DOCS/tech/*ac3* but it didn't work..... mplayer simply crashed and i had
to kill-9 it ( kill didn't help )... maybe the new audio filter system
has problems with it?
That's life for you, said McDunn. Someone always waiting for someone
who never comes home. Always someone loving something more than that
thing loves them. And after awhile you want to destroy whatever
that thing is, so it can't hurt you no more.
