I’m pretty sure I tried FLAC wrapped DTS a couple years ago in Kodi (probably V16) and it didn’t play. Definitely supported in V18 now, although it may be hardware related as both tests yesterday were on new media players.I tried it on the egreat A5 device. It failed to play either through the native player or some Vidon Kodi 16 Variant
From the ameridroid.com website: Odroid N2 parts (I chose the metal case, plastic one is $5.95) - You will also need an SD-Card and SD-Card to USB adapter to create the SD image from a PC or MAC.How much?
Can't say I'm surprised, but thanks for checking. It may work if you have Kodi decode it and just output PCM, but obviously attempting to bitstream it if the hardware insists on playing with the sampling rate is going to be trouble.I tried it on the egreat A5 device. It failed to play either through the native player or some Vidon Kodi 16 Variant. It only produces static.
I normally use AudioMuxer to wrap DTS in FLAC. If it's an encrypted source I'll run it through MakeMKV first. There are some discs MakeMKV has problems with (specifically, it completely garbles the chapters) and in those cases I use DVD Decrypter to demux followed by a Python script to put the .dts files into WAV and finally put the WAVs through the official FLAC command line.@atrocity How do you wrap DTS into FLAC? I’m wondering if Kodi would recognise and play TrueHD + Atmos in a FLAC wrapper.
Currently I’m using a Matroska .mka container but tagging is not read completely by Kodi, so as a workaround I’m using a CUE file to import .mka into the Kodi music library.
