making alsa work with multi channels?
I've got a question. I'm using mplayer and alsa, and am trying to get it so that mplayer's volume is independant from the whole system--currently it lowers the volume of everything, which means that I end up losing volume for everything else, too.
I did the following, and now it's not letting me change the volume. It is also only working on one channel. Ideas would be awesome on what I'm doing wrong
and in my ~/.mplayer/config:
# softvol - Volume Control
your ideas would be really great at this point.
also, I have to do something like -af format=s32le when I run mplayer, because it gives a format 16 error and says it's dropping to default, then it exits. Any ideas why that is?
