mplayer sound is low

Postby Anonymo » Fri Aug 27, 2010 9:50 pm

Using Archlinux and SMPlayer. When sound is set to 5.1, the volume is really low. If set to stereo, it's better.
This is my mplayer .config

Sound is fine in VLC

Code: Select all
[default]
# Write your default config options here!

# Align subs. (-1: as they want to align themselves)
spualign=-1

# Anti-alias subs. (4: best and slowest)

# Set subtitle position. (100: as low as possible)
subpos=100

# Set subtitle alignment at its position. (2: bottom)
subalign=2

# Set font size. (2: proportional to movie width)
subfont-autoscale=2

# Set font blur radius. (default: 2)
subfont-blur=2.0

# Set font outline thickness. (default: 2)

Thanks for the help cesium. I been troubleshooting and went to the extreme and booted into Windows :P

I installed mplayer and it seems to be really low sound as well. Might be an mplayer problem.

The oss_sbxfi driver doesn't support 5.1.... So it's not surprising it doesn't work right. Probably you should keep it at stereo?

For most video, I can hear sound in all the speakers. Just certain mpegs don't work.

If so, than it sounds like mplayer issue... What happens if you use "mplayer -af channels=6"?
