Official announcement new Audio Engine

XBMC made an official announcement of the inclusion of the new audio engine.

http://xbmc.org/dddamian/2012/05/30/xbmc-audio-goes-hd/

The new audio engine is a complete re-write of the core audio sub-system of XBMC and has been merged with the latest test versions a while ago. The following features are included:

support for DTS-MA / Dolby TrueHD Bluray formats
support for 24-bit and floating-point audio at up to 384,000hz
mixing of all streams including GUI sounds even when transcoding audio
start-up enumeration of hardware audio devices and their capablities with log output
bitstreaming support in PAPlayer (XBMC’s music player)
upmixing of stereo to full channel layout
tighter syncing of A/V streams
floating-point processing of audio
24-bit and floating-point decoding/handling of mp3
full support for ReplayGain
built-in sample-rate conversion and transcoding

More information about usage of the new audio engine can be found on: http://wiki.xbmc.org/index.php?title=AudioEngine

    When to expect a xbmclive version for linux with the new audio engine? Will that be 12.04 distribution?

  2. Stefan says:

    - tighter syncing of A/V streams

    Betekent dit dat de sync voorheen gewoon niet exact was en nu nog steeds niet helemaal ?

  3. XtrordinarY says:

    in welke repository zit de merge?

    ppa:team-xbmc/unstable of moet ik ppa:team-xbmc-svn/ppa hebben?

  4. Luqq says:

    XtrordinarY,

    Nee, niet een package repository maar de source (git) repository. Je zal dus zelf moeten compilen.

    Luqq,

    Thnx voor het antwoord.. dus geen easy way om de huidige Eden naar Frodo up te graden.

    Van compilen heb ik ook nog geen kaas gegeten dus dan maar wachten :)

    Hi :)

    Anyone knows how to install/get the AE from the nigthlies?

    1. I installed XBMCbuntu precise , xbmc eden 11 from 24 april started with no problems.

    I added the nightly builds from this site https://launchpad.net/~nathan-renniewaldock/+archive/xbmc-nightly

    2. sudo add-apt-repository: ppa:nathan-renniewaldock/xbmc-nightly

    3. sudo apt-get update

    4. sudo apt-get install –reinstall xbmc

    The result: Now when i start it up, i come to a XBMCbuntu-login window with 3 options
    Openbox=Grey background
    XBMC (the screen becomes black, but i come back to the login window again…
    XBMCbuntu (i came into XBMCbuntu graphical mode, i try to start xbmc manually from the menu, but nothing happens)

    Tips anyone? what did i do wrong :)

    “sudo apt-get install –reinstall xbmcbuntu” ?? i just want to update the xbmc

    xbmc now works for me :)

    1. logged in into xbmcbuntu desktop
    2. started the update-manager from the menu
    3. updated all updates
    4. To remove the Lonelycoder… E: error message
    i just clicked the settings button and unmarked the “lonelycoder” line.

    But the Audio Engine is a work in progress i guess, no sound from mp3/flac or Dts or DD.
    But i hope it will work soon :)
