5.1 flac files in a 2 channel system

Added by Doug Coffey over 6 years ago

I'm sure someone has brought this up before but a search came up with nothing...

Have some 5.1 surround sound flac files that I would like to play with Audacious in a 2 channel stereo system...

They don't play in audacious, but DO play in movie player (which only allows one song at a time to be loaded, can't load a whole directory to play one song after another)

Is there a plug-in or some editing I can do to a config file that will allow Audacious to play these files in 2 channel??

Thanks much!!!

I probably should also mention I'm using Lubuntu (Ubuntu LITE), and would like to keep the original file rates, with no downsampling... most of these are 24 bit 88 or 96khz files....

Thanks again

The channel mixer plugin can downmix 5.1 to stereo.

What didn't work? I assume you mean you didn't hear anything, but can you be more specific? Were there any error messages (either a message box or printed to the console)?

Right now, the FLAC Decoder can only play mono/stereo files. I'm working on it. As a workaround you can use FFmpeg Plugin instead of FLAC Decoder.
