Hi,

 

It's been a long time since i have used Emby, but i'm thinking of switching from Plex (again)

The reason is that i'we bought a chromecast and hooked it up to my projector and stereo amp (via an HDMI/SPDIF splitter) and my stereo amp well.. only does stereo.

 

Is it possible to set a profile or have a setting that forces downmixing of 5.1 (or whatever) to a stereo format only for chromecast in Emby?

 

If so then count me in as a premium menber today!

The previous ticket was closed to be followed in the new ticket.

I was wondering if there has been any update to this?

I use a Nvidia Shield as my primary streming device, but would like to get the chromecast working also!

Is there any update to this? I’m currently using the iOS app to cast to my tv and the 5.1 and 6ch audio really doesn’t sound good on my stereo setup.

HI @kilage, what is your Chromecast connected to for audio?

Hey so, I’m not quite sure if this counts, but I use the app on my phone to cast to my tv and whenever it plays 5.1+ on my 2.1 setup, the dialogue and whatnot is super quiet. And there’s no option on the app or screen to downmix the audio. I use the iOS app
