[Old] Vorbis Streamer (foo_vorbisstream) Reply #75 – 2010-01-16 15:59:52 There is one problem with this component in my specific usage scenario. I'm using different DSP chains depending on whether I listen with speakers or headphones. When listening with speakers I mix everything down to stereo but when listening with headphones I use the Dolby Headphone component to simulate a 5.1 system for 5.1 material. In that case I don't want to mix the material down to stereo. The problem is that the Vorbis Streamer cannot handle 5.1 (and maybe other non-stereo formats as well) properly. I could use the component after Dolby Headphone but I only want to stream a normal stereo signal because I don't know which type of equipment a potential listener uses and Dolby Headphone would only be adequate for headphone listening. Therefore I need Vorbis Streamer to properly recognize and process 5.1 material. The best solution would seem that Vorbis Streamer itself would mix the material down to stereo, unless foobar2000 got a DSP system with multiple parallel signal paths.
