Topic: AAC 7.1 playback issues
I have tested the mkv outputs of Hybrid in both Smplayer and VLC player.
Everything is working flawlessly except the AAC streams with 8 channels and only those which were encoded from DTS-HD 7.1 streams.
All the other AAC streams are working as excellent: 7.1 AAC streams encoded from TrueHD stream, all the 5.1 AAC streams encoded from both 5.1 DTS-HD and TrueHD streams.
I have checked these non-working (7.1 AAC streams encoded from DTS-HD) streams in media info and media info reports them without any issue (they were reported with exactly the same infos provided as the working streams) I have checked the streams in Mkvtoolnix as well, but found nothing wrong around them.
It is strange for me that an AAC 7.1 stream encoded from TrueHD is working flawlessly, while an other AAC 7.1 stream encoded from DTS-HD isn't, however after encoding in Hybrid I
checked both AAC streams in Quicktime and they were playing back without any issue. Smplayer said: "aid: no" and the stream is muted.
I got stuck with AAC encoded 7.1 DTS-HD streams. Please help.
