Please describe the problem:
Rhythmbox doesn't recognise multichannel files (like: 5.1 mp3, 5.1 mp4-aac, 5.1
dts-wav, 5.1 ac3), and if it does (for example 5.1-mp3) than it isn't playable
or only in stereo.
DTS sample files:
Steps to reproduce:
1. Download sample file
2. Open Rhythmbox
3. Import sample file
4. Play sample file
By most of them (especially mp4), rhythmbox gives an error at import for not
recognising the filetype.
Otherwise You hear noises, nothing or the file is playing in stereo only.
Always play the file and an option to playing it in stereo or multichannel (one
could be default).
Does this happen every time?
Yes, it happens every time.
I would like to see an option (like in vlc for example) for how may channels i
would like to listen (1.0 mono, 2.0 stereo, 2.1, 4.0, 4.1, 5.0, 5.1
multichannel). The default playback channel could be recognised from the file
(5.1 files at 5.1 channels) or always stereo (downmix), but add an option to
listen the multichannel file in multichannel surround.
Most of the files can be played in vlc or mplayer with full multichannel
