Hi! I just enabled surround sound 7.1 in Ubuntu 10.10 so I could produce
surround sound video in LiVES. I went to the preferences menu and tried to
change the sound channels from 2 to 8, but my only options were either 1 or 2
channels. How could I get 8 sound channels LiVES? Is that even possible? Do I
need Jack Audio instead of Pulse Audio?
Do you mean 8 channels in the soundcard ? Normally these are somewhat
reproduced, so for example you have 2 channels for speakers and 2 channels for
headphones. You can enable this kind of reproduction using jack audio.
A separate issue would be to support 5.1 (front/rear and center) audio in
LiVES for home theatre, which would mean adding an extra 3 audio tracks to
each video track. Support for this is not currently planned, but feel free to
open a feature request for it. Although you should note that most (maybe all)
video encoders only support stereo audio, so likely you would not be able to
encode your results.
