Coddy Posted December 30, 2020 Share Posted December 30, 2020 I'm considering buying this app as I find it to be the perfect music player for Android but I found that it fails to play AC3 or EAC3 encoded 5.1 music that I have in my library. So far I've used MX Player to play those which uses HW decoding route which basically offloads the decoding to the OMX.dolby.eac3_joc.decoder present in my phone (Samsung A71). I was wondering if something similar to MX Player offloading is planned in the near future. I understand AC3/EAC3 are licensed and are not to be implemented into the core code of your app for decoding, but for those who have the ability to decode offered by the OS would be a waste not to be able to use that (hoping there won't be any technical limitations on how you engineered your data chain).
