    Yes I heard of it. Not sure about new patents coming into
    play with that one...
    I must admit that I also don't have a surround hifi set or
    any surround sound files for that matter.

    So, the technical difficulties may be sorted out on
    reorganizing the code for 1.0, while there may still be
    someone needed who has the material and motivation to code
    it. I cannot promise that this someone will be me.
    But at least we have this tracker item here as a reminder.

    That is a good idea, but maybe you'll need the DTS standard
    or a Dolby Digital encoder, but these are pantented and
    cannot be used in freeware programs :(.

    Maybe, if MP3 use a mono, stereo, 4.1ch, 5.1ch, 6.1ch and
    7.1ch encoder that will be awesome :)!!! (obviously it will
    need high bitrates -maybe at 512 kbps will sound well-)
