You all were correct. The volume in XBMC was turned all the way down. Thanks to everyone!

Sorry if there are multiple posts of this reply, for some reason they are not showing up.

With the "take3" build movies with AAC or MP3 sound are played back at like 2x speed and sound like the chimpmunks. Movies with FLAC 5.1 or 7.1 produce no sound at all.

TrueHD works great though.

I have begun work on DTS-HD support, we should have that working very soon as well, with the changes ArtVandelae has made, it should just work on all platforms once I get it in there.

Congrats on your efforts and good luck with the remaining codecs.

Thank you,

That's exactly what i'm seeing. Didn't get chance to test last night, so will try and get logs tonight if no one beats me to it.

Cheers

I would like to try the AudioEngine, can someone tell me how I install the Take3 build?
I tried copying the contents over to my XBMC folder in Program Files but it says I'm missing MSVCR100.
I'm running Windows 7 Ultimate x64.


- liquidskin76 - 2011-05-04 11:04

I just ran the .exe direct from a folder. Don't worry about copying into another xbmc installation.

Cheers

Well, I officially feel stupid. Thanks for the tip about the volume. That fixed it.

You are probably missing, the Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable Package (x64), download it from here:

http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/details.aspx?FamilyID=bd512d9e-43c8-4655-81bf-9350143d5867

And you just need to unpack the rar anywhere and run the exe, i.e. no need to put into xbmc dir

Updated Windows build. Squeaky voices in shared mode should be gone.

Installing the Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable Package didn't make any difference (on my iMac running Parallels Desktop Win7).
I tried the build on my HTPC at home and it worked fine.

Nice to see XBMC outputting TrueHD! Big Grin

What is "Exclusive Mode"?

Still no sound with FLAC, and now AAC files have no sound and only play at 3 FPS before it crashes.

I have some logs, but not sure how to post them without putting up a wall of text.

Make sure debug mode is enabled and then post here: http://www.pastebin.com

Seeing similar results on this Win build.

With 5.1/7.1 flac files i get very very low audio, with volume bar not working so unable to turn up... http://pastebin.com/GuJvbEQd

With 1ch pcm file (from iphone recording), i get about 3secs of stuttering playback, then a hard crash... http://pastebin.com/XjiR9LkF

@liquidskin76 - Low audio is because you are down-mixing to 2.0 and do not have boost volume levels enabled, proper down-mixing will always reduce volume levels, the boost is a hack to disable normalization, there is no way around this, its a technical limitation of your sound system only having 2 speakers.

As for 1ch pcm, looks unrelated, avcodec errors, etc.

Before posting a crash report, test first in the stable branch, if it crashes there also AE is not your problem.

Debug logs are pretty useless without a stack trace at this point, we need to know WHERE the program crashed to debug it. If you cant or dont know how to provide a stack trace, you need to post a sample of the file that crashed the media center, your audio settings (including output device) so that we can try to replicate the problem and generate a stack trace our selfs.
