suggestion to manage audio under win32 - slash - 2008-04-13

Hi all,

I know that there is no support for audio pass through under win32.
I was wondering if it could be a good idea to just forward the XBMC audio to the OS drivers (like in mediaportal).

I have no idea what is effort to do that, but it thought to share this with you (with no pretention). I'm also willing to help in the coding (not an expert Blush), but I don't know where to start and how to prepare a dev environement.

are you talking about like 5.1 pass through? cuz that does work now. Wink

Thanks for repying,

I have a receiver connected to the audio output of my PC (SPDIF), so I can have DTS and DB (5.1) decoded by my receiver.

In XBMC, if I select digital output I get no sound from a DTS movie, if I select analog I get it downmixed to 2.0.

Make sure that you use the newest build from here: http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=87054&package_id=260464&release_id=585323

If you would like to have a look in the code, win32directsound.cpp is the way to go.
