FLAC and 5.1 channel sound?!?!?!?!?!?!?

ok now i have converted all my cd's into the FLAC format, now i have also installed the Winamp 2 plugin to handle FLAC files.

the thing is it will not play through my 5.1 channel setup.

i ahev tried all of the plugins for 5.1 channel output but they do not achive it either.

all other formats play through 5.1 channels such as Ogg, Mp3, Avi etc...

its just the FLAC files that don't

i have Direct sound active and it recognises my sound setup as being 5.1 channels, that is all perfect.

i have searched the forums here to no avail!!

currently i am using winamp 3.** this works Perfectly for playing FLAC files.

but honestly i am not very keen on winamp3

i actually used winamp3 before winamp2 but uninstalled it because it was so buggy.

well i guess i still have to deal with that winamp3 again.



i have a feeling its the FLAC plugin that is at fault but i am not sure.

any suggestions.


thanks for your time

Which FLAC plugin are you using?
Who is the author?
(afaik, there's more than one)
Is it the latest version?

well that could be it, i was using the plugin from the Winamp site.

i also used the plugin from a flac installer (but a different one from that you posted)

so i guess i will try again with the new ones and get back to ya.

thanks for that.

yeah i tried both of them and neither worked.

well i am currently using winamp 3 and its not too bad.

but this is getting me a bit baffled as to why winamp2 won't mix two channels from flac into 5.1 channels.

Hmmmm anyone else have similar problems.

(p.s. i have now tried 5 versions of the plugin)
