Well, my old Powerbook failed a few days ago, so I got a new Intel Powerbook (no, I will not use the stupid name). It is nice and fast. I may give a better review later, but for now, the biggest gripe I had so far was the fact that I couldn’t play videos with AC-3 audio anymore. So, I took the A52 Codec and modified its source so that it would work on Intel. While I was at it, I corrected numerous mistakes in the code (some even caused crashes), and made it work with the audio in AVI files. Anyway, if anyone needs it before the developer merges in my fixes, they can find it here.

Hi, Is it possible to have this component passthrough the ac3 stream to the digital output ? I would love having my receiver decoding this all, especially as the LFE channel is not being decoded with this component. Thanks for your work thusfar!

I would like to do passthrough, but from what I see, it seems like the application has to turn on passthrough. If this is the case, then it is up to Apple to fix it. BTW, VLC can do passthrough playback.
