Linux AudioEngine testers - Linux only
#74
Hey everybody,

I wanted to try the AudioEngine branch for quite some time now and today I finally had some spare time to try out a shitload of testfiles. ;-) So far I'm very impressed with what you guys have archieved here, mad props to gnif and DDDamian for keeping up this complex work making XBMC even better!

My Setup:
Nvidia GT430 Card, Ubuntu 11.10 x86, Nvidia 180 Drivers, Denon 4310

Successfully tested (at least 2 different files for each format):
--
Dolby True HD 5.1
Dolby True HD 7.1
DTS-HD HR 7.1
DTS-HD MA 5.1
DTS-HD MA 7.1
FLAC Stereo 96kHz
FLAC Stereo 192kHz
FLAC 5.1 96kHz

All played flawlessly, no stuttering, no drops and no sync/signal loss.


I had problems playing
--
Dolby Digital Plus (DD+) 7.1 (tried two files, both stutter/video plays *very* slow and no audio output at all). I'm not even sure if that format is used anywhere, but I had two files to test. Debug log playing both DD+ 7.1 files can be found here: http://paste2.org/p/1997876

DTS-HD MA 5.1 Terminator Demo (stuttering/slow playing, distorted video; stuttering audio that stop later on). Full debug log can be found here: http://paste2.org/p/1997892 and the Demo/Sample can be downloaded from http://www.trailerz.demo-world.eu/hd/hd_....part1.rar and http://www.trailerz.demo-world.eu/hd/hd_....part2.rar

All the files I tested were downloaded from http://www.demo-world.eu/trailers/high-d...ailers.php excluding the FLAC files, I found those on another site hosting a few High-Res SACD conversions: http://www.2l.no/hires/index.html

Apart from the sample/demo files I tried Tron: Legacy and the LOTR Trilogy for a nice DTS-HD MA experience - both kick some serious a$$ soundwise! ;-)

Hope this feedback helps in a way and thanks again for bringing XBMC's audio output to the HD age.
