Not sure if i understand you correctly - passthrough is done by AC3 filter, not FFDshow, so why to setup FFDshow to do it?nice work with the last beta!
A few suggestions about spdif. You put the option to choose spdif output but it is not set as so in ffdshow. The mixer should be disabled and the output section should be setup to allow spdif passthrough
Great job anyway
For decoding AAC Monogram AAC decoder is used, not FFDshow (FFDshow have only experiental support for AAC, lot of AAC audio doesnot working).Most of the time yes. But ac3filter doesnt handle aac for example. And For me ffdshow is used, so i need to set pass-through in ffdshow. What i mean is that it doesnt cost a lot to setup ffdshow to do spdif passthrough(thats what you want as you chose yes... ), that way we are sure it works for any file using ffdshow.
What do you think?
Can someone help me find this 'system tab'? I can't go past saf400beta13 because of this issue. Thanks.Sorry but where is this 'system tab'? Having same problem (Win7/MP11b).on my clean installation it wasnt and it was causing exactly the problemconfigure audio output (FFDshow + AC3 fiter) to use stereo output format.
not true, Direct sound is set as default...
as above is posted only rear speaker sound through front speakers and no speech
That is correct, ffdshow have disabled AC3/DTC, AC3 filter is in use instead.Hi hoborg,
Some users in the German thread are reporting various issues with AC3 since SAF 4.00 b14.
I need to ask you for help, as I am not very fimilar with the latest changes you made (and not very fimilar with AC3 at all).
If ffdshow is being selected as MPEG2/AC3 Audio Decoder, the sound playback of an AC3 audio track within an MKV container fails.
Users are reporting that AC3 audio can only be played with AC3filter.
You mean passthrough not working ? You can see diference in AC3 filter setting enable/disable passthrough + various settings.Interesting:
It doesn't make a difference if AC3 passthrough is being activate or not during the installation.
Do you haven an idea where to start to find the error?
Are there any log files, our German speaking friends should provide for further investigations?
