How surround from DVD?
Anybody happen to know how to get surround sound from a Dolby surround sound DVD movie played on mplayer?
mplayer then says it is producing six audio channels, but just get the normal 2 front and subwoofer stereo. It is using the correct codec: the one for ac3. I've tried the channels filter. Incidentally it makes the speech, but not the music and FX, faint and indistinct. Omit '-channels 6' and the speach is all right. Suspect this problem is alsa's doing, not mplayer's.
