Pulseaudio: AC3 Support does not work anymore
Last modified: 2008-06-13 19:41:06 EDT
Since some updates (I have not figured out what is the exact problem here) AC3
passthrough using pulseaudio does not work anymore. The yum.log is attached. AC3
Passthrough did work on the 14th of may.
Created attachment 306584 [details]
yum log of the latest updates on my machine
Disabling pulseaudio via /etc/alsa/alsa.conf "fixes" this problem for me:
PulseAudio doesn't do AC3 pass-through. If you want to use it, then you have to
use the spdif ALSA plugin and bypass PA. If PA is blocking access to the audio
device you might want to wrap your call in "pasuspender".
