HD/blu ray rip playback? - renegade - 2008-02-11 23:08
I have been trying to find out whether or not playback of x264 HD/blu ray rips is possible.
Currently the video play perfectly, however the audio is hosed(for lack of a better term). I did read that it was only on-board audio that is bad, and that using outboard audio works(am going to try that shortly).
What I am curious is if anyone is able to have full playback on their MAC?
I am using a 24" aluminum, 2.4GHz Core2Duo, 4G RAM, Radeon HD2600 256MB, only info I have for sound is "Intel High Definition Audio" (built-in).
Any suggestions are greatly appreciated(if it is possible).

You need to use digital audio out (to an amp) as the rips you are trying to play are 5.1 surround and currently XBMC for OS X does not down convert them to 2 channel stereo which is why you get the weird audio.

Well then that makes sense. Obviously external out had same result.
Thanks for your reply.
