I want to able to play a movie with more then 2 sound channels. In Mac i was able to do it, hacking the AVPlayerFoundation, but i can’t find where sound channels are configured when starting the player inner settings on ofDirectShowPlayer. @theo do you have any tips on this? Thanks in advance
I have done this using https://github.com/secondstory/ofxDSHapVideoPlayer, but any direct show player with an appropriate format should work (AVI I know works).
You need to configure your sound card to be 5.1 or 7.1 from windows audio settings and make sure you have a 5.1 or 7.1 audio track in your movie, it should be automatically recognised. You can use virtual dub to remux or add multichannel audio to AVI files.
It is not as flexible as on Mac with track numbers and track ordering but it worked fine for me for 8 channels.
i will definitely check this! Thanks
