I guess this doesn't work for Vista x64? All I get is: "Unable to open item for playback (Unsupported file format):[insert my dts or dd file here]. I tried both .AC3/.DTS and .SPDIF file extensions, same result.
Hi,this kind of plugin is all that I need for happiness.Unfortunately it doesn't work here. foo_spdif Without foo-Ac3, foobar2000 crashesfoo-spdif With foo-Ac3 I get usual playback, not spdifAdded msv80 library into system32, no happiness*.spdif appended to filenames, no happinessUh?Rozzo
Grzesio,Thank you very much for creating this plugin. It is the missing piece that I was looking for.I tried v0.1b, and the only problem that I encountered is that it does not always set the sound card to the correct sampling rate. For example, when I play a 44.1kHz .AC3 file, sometimes it correctly sets the sound card to 44.1kHz, but sometimes it incorrectly sets the sound card to 48kHz. A similar problem happens when I play a 48kHz .AC3 file. In any case, the foobar2000 status bar always shows the correct sampling rate. It's just the sound card that is being set incorrectly sometimes. To get around the problem, I have to keep restarting the playback of the file until it eventually sets the correct sampling rate.I will try v0.2 and report my results.By the way, I am using the latest version of foobar2000 (v0.9.4.3), with the ASIO output plugin, on the M-Audio Delta DiO 2496 sound card (with the latest drivers), and Windows XP SP2.
Ops, that is very very odd what you have discovered Thanks for detailed explanation of the problem. I will try to do something about it.To be shure, does it mean that if you don't click anything (just let the playlist play itself continously) then everything is ok?
Does the problem become only when you are changing from one playing track to another or is it present also when you are starting to play from silence (stopped state)?
Could you test it again with output plugin set to null renderer?
And also I would like to know if the <FORCED!> tag is visible at any time in the status bar.
About mpeg audio, does it mean that your receiver is capable of decoding mpeg audio? Because mine simply is not
When I play my AC3 files with creative mediasource (windows XP, Creative X-Fi, digital bitstream output activated), I get a pop-up "Dolby Digital Bitstream Out" and the display on my Denon AVR 1706 Receiver reads "Dolby Digital EX". In this condition, music sounds perfect through my six speakers, loud, clear and integrated, sooo satisfying. In this mode, I can control music's volume only through the receiver controls.Same effect obtained with Zoom Player and Ciberlink Power DVD.With Foobar and spdif plugin (I tried Direct Sound, Kernel Streaming and Asio aoutput) I get only standard Playback, Receiver applies its PLII or NEO 5x1 effects, so no way to hear my AC3 as they.My question is if this spdif passtrough plugin can send the ac3 files directly to the receiver as Dolby Digital bitstream from Foobar or I'am misunderstanding something.
I hope foo_spdif_v0.3 will help on that.
