Windows 8.1 Netflix App Plays Only In Stereo

https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/desktop/aa369729%28v=vs.85%29.aspx?f=255&MSPPError=-2147217396 The nature of the bug is such that it is triggered only when the app is a Windows Store app. Anyone have any clues? It's been the most reliable for me. Stuck with a faster MS office and not much else Reply to dannyhefc69 herocrafterJul 30, 2015, 1:11 PM Upgraded to win 10, from 7.

is prohibited. after I posted that last night i just sat down and tired at random various content. I suspect this decision was made by Netflix in the wake of the recent DRM vulnerability uncovered in Widevine. Thanks for your feedback.

Its good to know that the isssue is moving through the queue at MS. Otherwise, I believe this is an app problem with Netflix and I don't think there's anything you can do about it. It seems like bitslop experienced the same thing.

Go to Control Panel, Programs, and uninstall the audio driver. Edge is decoding the DD for you. We're working on a fix. Wish I knew what he did to fix it.

I have sound but only the right and subwoofer are workibng. It's not implying the MP3 is lossless, only that the receiver isn't doing the decoding, the PC is. Edge now DECODES DOLBY DIGITAL! I know its early but this is a big pain to me.

I believe my older Panasonic TH-58PZ800U "digital out" only passes 5.1 when using its internal tuner. If you want the highest video quality in Microsoft Windows, you need to either use Edge, Internet Explorer 11, or the Netflix app itself to get it.

First, I couldn't even get any audio from my DTS & Dolby Digital 1080p .mkv movies.

How do you get "options"? You can find this if you right click your sound device in the "Sound" part of the Control Panel and hit properties in the drop down. solved Windows 10 Realtek 5.1 surround sound volume issues solved Windows 10 PC with Sound Blaster Audigy FX sound card and 5.1 speakers is outputting in 2.1 virtual surround solved Alienware I can stream 4K on my computer right now using YOUTUBE, and netflex knows theres no such thing as browser limitation as the browser is not playing anything, the video player

I contacted support at Netflix and managed to get them to contact a engineer. Windows 10 allows a very high bit-rate audio, so much so that it will actually exceed the specs if you have it at 192KHz and 24-bit in stereo and want to Phakey Prophile I'm curious how this is just coming to light? Seems odd why it wouldn't on Netflix.

In fact, it was using this by default anyway. I think that's currently not supported on Xbox One. I'm currently using CCCP (although there hasn't been an official update in over a year). If you press the text message bubble in the Netflix app during playback you can choose the audio format.

But didn't present any multi-channel stream, just stereo. Ask ! That's why, I presume, people say to not configure windows for 5.1 and just leave it as stereo.

Windows 8 boots but as soon as I log on there is a four note tune that plays continuously and after a couple of minutes I get a black screen and http://blogs.msdn.com/b/matthew_van_eerde/ We've tracked this down to a bug in Windows - specifically, in the Media Foundation Streaming Audio Renderer. I could't get netflix to stream the older Dolby Digital 5.1 , but at the same time I also didn't run into another occasion where 5.1 didn't come down when the toonontherun is offline Quote post #3 of 12 Old 08-03-2015, 03:45 PM - Thread Starter edgeh2o Advanced Member Join Date: Sep 2008 Location: Fresno, Ca Posts: 530 Mentioned:

Harrison Ford I'm made of money, but no subscription service, be it Netflix or Spotify, make even the least bit sense to me. You can watch titles in 5.1 surround sound if you have a receiver that supports Dolby Digital Plus and a connection speed of 3.0 megabits per second or faster.

My receiver is an Onkyo and I am using the "direct" output, meaning it should play exactly as per the source (same as I have for Fios, where 5.1 on HDMI Processor intel I7 4790 Motherboard Guaard -pro 97M windows prof 8.1 N ethernet connection 60-12 Movie theator Cambridg 751 R2 My problem: I downloaded the Netflix app from the windows store.
