5.1 Audio Speaker Setup

Postby bugmonkey » Thu Jan 29, 2009 2:27 pm

Hi there,

I'm having some issues with 5.1 audio in MKV files (PMS running under Ubuntu Server). The channels seem to get mixed up so the audio comes out of the wrong speakers; the centre channel seems to come out of the the rear right with other speakers playing different channels (not sure which ones are which). Has anyone else had this issue? Any thoughts on why this might be happening?

Other than that PMS is a great piece of software and is working a treat!

Cheers,

Neil

Igvolvo: It is a bug in mencoder (even if you use tsmuxer, mencoder is still used). As of now there doesn't seem to be a fix in the works until the bug in mencoder is fixed.
