i went to a youtube 7.1 surround sound 7.1 test and it diddnt work. it did work on my computer test tho, is ther something i have to do ??!? all the "7.1" vids are jsut coming out on the sub and front 3 speakers, please halp!!1!
i have already fixed it by changing the swich on the subwoofer from 6.1/7.1 to auto and it worked but if u wer interested it was creative audigy 2 nx and iw as using a user made support package so it was complicated htanks anyways for displaying interest
I think it depends on the format the video was originally made in, I am not sure what has been changed as I used to get 5.1 in win 7 but since win 10, I have been fighting to get more than stereo unless I use a setting on my speakers that creates fake virtual surround. If video is recorded in 5.1 I get all speakers.
Just the other day some "kid" asked why what I use the laptop for? and I got a slim, notepad-like Macbook Air, so I was startled for a few seconds then realize this "kid" uses his phablet for everything. I personally can't do that, my geezer's eyes won't allow and frankly I can't immerse in a movie unless am watching it on my 55" and my theater (not-PC) speakers. YMMV.
i have a Galaxy S7, but recently can't see anything on screen without my glasses on. I never got a laptop as I like big screens and surround sound - you can get that on them now but I can't afford the cost.
funny watched a vid last year explaining to kids what cassette tapes were and how they worked... suddenly felt old
i found what it was and how to fix it. it was that i was using chrome and i found a link to some settings (wich i have unfortunatley lost) and i searched (using ctrl + f) for surround and it came up with an option to enable surrround sound suppoer if in avalable format because it is disabled at factory settings so yea. i will try to find the link but it definatley worked thanks tho for all of your support
