Description

This started about half a year ago. After another update I've couldn't watch the any movie that has 5.1 sound included. I've set "channels by default" to 5.1 in the smplayer settings and have not received any errors or warnings from smplayer or mplayer, playback just not start. If I rewind video it's looks as if playing is paused — I've see freeze frame. Video works again when I disabled the audio equalizer in smplayer settings but audio begins to stutter. No any difference whether DTS or AC3 track, when I switch from stereo to 5.1 — sound begins stuttering. I already try using svn/git builds of mplayer and smplayer but this not help to me.

So, now I forced to use VLC, I dislike him, but he plays 5.1 normally.

All of this happens on Arch Linux (x86_64) with latest updates. If I miss some information about this issue — just give me know.

Regards.

This happens only when I using hw surround51 device, if using something like this "-ao alsa:device=dmix6ch" all works fine.

dmix6ch device in ~/.asoundrc:
pcm.dmix6ch {

type dmix
ipc_key 1024
ipc_key_add_uid 1
slave {

pcm "hw:0,0"
channels 6
rate 48000
period_time 0
period_size 1024
buffer_time 0
buffer_size 4092

}

}
