I think you can if you use the decoding panel, though. I keep Highly Experimental disabled and only enable it for sets that are rejected by AOPSF, such as Final Fantasy 10.

AOPSF also plays the Kingdom Hearts II set very badly. It also doesn't play the Silent Hill 2 set at all.

I see you have removed your components from official repo and your website. I hope it was not serious matter.

I wonder why?! I hope everything is ok with Kode54 and Peter...

Jesus christ, I take one little break over some private issues, and everyone starts thinking that one of my friends drove me to suicide.

No. This is related to toxic behavior I've just finally grown tired of, first from the public IRC channel, then the private alpha channel. I really should be calling the people responsible out for it to their faces, in the venues I described, instead of just vacating silently.

I also should have realized that taking down my components from everywhere they're normally available for, and delisting them (not removing them) from the official repository, would only send a message to my followers, and a bad one at that.

Sheesh, please people, stop overreacting. You're only serving to hurt people, as I guess I've hurt you in this action.

I'll likely end up putting everything back the way it was, and rejoin the private chat at least, and poke some people to try to keep their "silly" comments to a minimum.

I'll continue operating the forum as an administrator, as I have been doing almost daily for years now. Sorry if I ignored some of you in personal messages, I was kind of mad at the whole situation before I found out that some anonymous person on 4chan was accusing one of my friends of driving me to suicide. That person can kindly hecc off.

Hey kode, I didn't find a thread specifically for foo_ac3, so I'm hoping this is the right place to ask. I've got a 7.1 setup with both side surround and back surrounds. They are configured correctly in Win10 which is outputting 7.1 sound. I'm using foo_ac3.

When I play a 5.1 ac3 file the rear surrounds are being used instead of the side surrounds. This seems wrong... or at least something that ought to be configurable.
With a 5.1 DTS file, the side surrounds are correctly used.

Do you know why this might be happening with ac3 files and if there's any way to change it? I can change to a 5.1 setup and then the side surrounds work, but that's no good for movie watching.

It uses the correct speakers for the AC-3 standard, which was not expanded to support side surrounds until E-AC-3, as far as I know. I do not support E-AC-3.

If I were ever to support E-AC-3, I would need to merge foo_ac3 with foo_input_dts, since that is already using a specialized version of FFmpeg to decode DTS and DTS-HD MA.

The side surrounds are used with DTS in foobar2000 because FFmpeg already decides that is the correct speaker mask to use for it.

I'll have to look into this in the future.

Can you please give link to the source of this information?
Because wikipedia says, that correct standard channel layout for Dolby (and DTS too, of course)  is 5.0 (5.1) SIDE - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Surround_sound#Standard_speaker_channels (see Note 3 in header of column for 5.0 side).
THX site also say that side speakers are used for 5.1 - https://www.thx.com/faq/#set-5-1-surround-sound-speakers It is not called literally "side" there, but if you compare picture of 5.1 setup with 7.1 setup picture ( https://www.thx.com/faq/#set-7-1-surround-sound-speakers ), it is obvious that 5.1 uses side speakers, not back/rear.

I can change to a 5.1 setup and then the side surrounds work, but that's no good for movie watching.
As workaround to remap channels only for AC3 you can use foo_dynamicdsp ( https://hydrogenaud.io/index.php/topic,96094.msg956094.html#msg956094 ) together with matrix mixer ( http://skipyrich.com/wiki/Foobar2000:Matrix_Mixer )
