Hello. I have a bunch of 5.1 .ogg files that aren't playing correctly. For example, the LFE channel plays from the surround left, the center from the front left, etc. Is there a way to correct this? All other formats play correctly. Thanks!

I just noticed all these ogg files have what seems to be a corrupt surround right channel which is completely distorted. I've put in a lot of work & have been creating custom mixes from .mogg multitrack songs using Audacity & decided on using ogg because the flac files end up being larger than the original file. But between Kodi not playing them properly & now noticing the surround right channel is bad, I'm going to re-do them all using flac. Thanks anyway!
Thread marked solved.
