SP/DIF Player Solution

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I use SP/DIF when I can. VLC handles DTS and AC3 just fine. But the problem is Windows Media Player and VLC both decode MP3s that should be 44.1KHz as 48 Khz (or at least send them to my onboard sound chip to be resampled). So unless I am playing DTS or AC3 material my reciever shows the SP/DIF stream is 48 KHz PCM. I release this is the default output and VLC basically hijacks the SP/DIF stream to output anything AC3 or DTS. Is there some way to configure VLC or download another player that would similarly hijack the SP/DIF stream to output things that should be a sampling rate other than 48 as their proper rate? This also important becuase I have some 24bit/96KHz material as .wav that I would love to pass to my AV receiver as 96 KHz instead of 48.

Prior to VLC 0.8.2, there was ASIO support, so you might be able to get ASIO4ALL working on your Karajan and that should solve your problem. I'm assuming that you are playing videos. If you just have 24/96 music that you want to play, you can use foobar2000 and configure ASIO with that.

I never actually used ASIO4ALL since I have native ASIO, but it should be just download and install, and enable it in foobar2000. Here's the tutorial for setting up foobar by DJ.Bigbear.
