3rd Party Plugins - (fb2k) / Re: Linear Phase Subwoofer
Last post by CitizenInsomniac -
Some questions about this component:
1. Is there any documentation which describes the various filters available?
2. Are any of the filters considered better than others? Any reason to use anything other than the default filter?
3. When given a multi-channel audio signal as input does the DSP use only FL+FR or does it use all channels to derive the bass frequencies?
4. Are the bass frequencies removed from the input channels or are input channels left untouched?
5. What does L/R sync do?
6. What is the expected LFE channel output volume level relative to the other channels? Are additional volume adjustments typically necessary?

Any or all responses much appreciated. :)
Lossless / Other Codecs / Re: Monkey's Audio - Observations and the need to update some statements on the net?
Last post by kode54 -
Off-topic, page description for Cog updated to include the two extra codecs that were long supported, but not actually listed in the features page. Namely, Monkey's Audio and TAK. I don't support either one via their official libraries, but by FFmpeg, so features may be missing. I did test general support, though. Wavpack is also supported, including floating point and DSD. I do the DSD decimation and downsampling myself, though.
Other Lossy Codecs / Re: Patent expiration for E-AC3 (Dolby Digital Plus)?
Last post by IgorC -
E-AC3 (aka Dolby Digital Plus) is used exclusively for some terrestrial television broadcasts in Europe. For example:,IDF&liste=1&live=1&lang=en

How about just using AC-3, MPG (Layer II), MP3 and LC-AAC?
All decoding/demuxing patents for these formats have been already expired.

That's what Italy does  :)

Peter, same issue, not being able to connect. Looks like the problem was fixed for that VPS/SSL instance but if I reset the VPS and get new certs, even if the IP is the same it gives the same error again.

Not sure if the issue is invalid/self-signed certs in particular because it looks like it can't even query the ZNC, can we try to add an option to skip invalid certificates or allow self-signed ones?
