General - (fb2k) / Re: FFmpeg Decoder Wrapper (foo_input_ffmpeg) passthrough outputLast post by gorman -
I would very much like to see the passthrough option in Foobar for all Dolby and DTS signals (DTSHDMA, TrueHD, DTS96/24 old-lossy ones and all others).As far as Dolby Digital, DTS and DTS 96/24, you can get passthrough by NOT installing AC3 and DTS decoders in foobar2000 and using AudioMuxer and its "Convert AC3/DTS to SPDIF Wav/Flac" function. It encapsulate the AC3/DTS content in a WAV file you can then compress to FLAC, in order to properly tag it.
foobar2000 decodes the FLAC and leaves the result untouched, sending it bitperfect to your AVR. Obviously you need to use WASAPI output and leave fb2k volume at 100%.
Which is pretty much what I'd like to find a way to do with FFmpeg Decoder Wrapper for object based surround content. Because while DTS-HD MA and TrueHD can be decoded losslessly (so I think, at least) the object based surround extensions of Atmos and DTS-X are completely lost in the process, currently.
