View Full Version : Dolby Digital Plus playpack in Mplayer

12th October 2008, 12:23
I have problems playing video containers that use Dolby Digital Plus audio tracks with Mplayer (version SVN-r27637 from Suses packman repository). I have also tried 1.0rc2 with the same result.
The O/S is OpenSuse 11.0 64-bit

Get an error message similar to this:
==> Found audio stream: 2
[mkv] Unknown/unsupported audio codec ID 'A_EAC3' for track 2 or missing/faulty
[mkv] private codec data.
[mkv] Track ID 2: audio (A_EAC3) "DDPlus5.1 1536Kbps", -aid 0, -alang eng

Isnīt this supposed to work with mplayer ?
When I tried using ffplay it works without problems.

Anyone know how to fix this ?
