I've done a bunch of searching (including thru the archives here) and can't find a definitive answer.
I'm wondering if mplayer can output 5.1 channel Dolby Digital over the optical audio out on my Mac Mini. I have it working with another un-named vmedia player :) on the same file on the same system. Just can't figure out how to convince mplayer to do the same. Some other posts seem to imply it might be possible, but I have not been able to replicate that result.
With mplayer I have tried
-ac hwac3 (I get pulsing static)
and several others in various combinations. But the only 2 sounds I've been able to get are
- downmixed to 2 ch audio
- the pulsing static
I compile the latest source with
Dunno if there are other libraries I need, etc.
Thanks for any suggestions.
