Hello David,

 

Now is my question, where do i put the "--disable-audio-output-resampler"?

 

I hope to hear soon from you!

At the end of the path of the shortcut target.

Open the properties of the spotify shortcut,

The only way I can get it to play in 5.1 is to hook my macbook up to my TV and then surround sound up to my TV via Optical. The TV converts it to 5.1. Hope that helps if it hasn't already said before.

I have the solution for Realtek devices!

Right-click the sound button next to the clock and go to Playback Devices, right-click again on your sound card, go to properties and then tab improvements and choose the "speaker fill"

This solved my problem, now the sound comes out in the 5 boxes!

Sorry if something was confusing I used the translator to write!

Unfortunately that doesn't work for me on Win 10, I don't have the option for speaker-fill.

I can tell you that if you use the webplayer on MS EDGE (only!) it works perfectly.  It's the only browser that will playback in 5.1 that I've seen.  Unfortunately you can't select a higher bitrate stream with the webplayer, but it's ok.  The other option I've found is to use a spotify add-on with Kodi, this actually sounds fantastic but is a bit clunky to use.

calangobruno thanks for your post. It was helpful for me with one small difference. Instead of clicking  "speaker fill" I just ticked "Dolby Prologic IIx" and Spotify plays now all 5.1

I have found a fix for mine!

Download Voicemeeter:

http://vb-audio.pagesperso-orange.fr/Voicemeeter/

then install it, and reboot your pc.

go to playback devices.

And set up the vooicemeter app as 7.1, but untip the side pairs if u have 5.1 . See photo

And just click next, next, finish.

 

Then setup your speaker in Voicemeeter. See photo

Now we need to let it start every bootup, so we need to put a shortcut in the startup map.

Goto Start (windows logo)

All programms

Go to the Startup map, and right click than click on open.

Than go back to all programs, and find a map called VB Audio.

Open the map, also the voicemeeter app.

Copy the app called, Voicemeeter, in the Startup map that we just opend.

DONE! I hope it worked!!
