    I have a episode of kingdom hospital (xvid) in AC3 and various WM9 movies none of which I can get DD out of on my AMP.

    I am using the AC3filter codec.. and I have to set it to filter AC3 to get sound from the KH episode.. and the WM9's I have seem to be PCM?? (Spiderman/Hp2)

    Are any of the WM9 movies actually dolby digital ? I have no problems feeding a DD stream to my amp on the TS movies ??

    Do I need to use a different player rather than mediaplayer ?


    Cheers

    Matt

    Hi Matt,
    I had the exact same problem yesterday. After trying most of the settings in the AC3Filter I found out you have to select the option spdif (disabled) on the main options page.

    The settings for the spdif pass through dont seem to make any difference. I think its the name thats confusing, i originally thought that "spdif (disabled)", really did disable it. BTW I'm using v1.01a of the ac3filter. Hope this helps

    Forgot u might want to also set the "default audio renderer" to wave out rather than Direct sound

    Regards
    Mark

    When dealing with WMA-sound as in WM9-files you have to have something that can decode on the fly, luckily the ac3-filter v1 was just released and its the first software capable of this. Earlier you had to have a nforce2board with soundstorm. All this is regarding sending the signal digital that is. No problem when youre analog.

    Thanks ever so much lagertop, I've been trying for ages to get 5.1 out of xvid with my external decoder, proves I should have just checked avforums first, heh. :)
