In Topic: POTPLAYER Set Up 5.1 Audio to receiver amp

Potplayer media player
In my opinion the very best free media player out there


you should be able to set what you need to in the context menu

right-click in the video window --> Audio

from there you can choose settings for Audio Renderer, S/PDIF Audio Renderer, 2nd Audio renderer, etc

suppose you want to keep using the laptop speakers whenever the card is disconnected (ie. manually muting the lappy speakers when connected).  

this might work:

    Audio --> 2nd Audio Renderer --> DirectSound: blah blah USB card digital (Optical)

also, to avoid sending stereo converted to fake surround:

    Audio --> Output Speakers --> Same as input


- if that dont work, try the same but choosing WaveOut options instead of DirectSound

- i am not sure how your external sound card will behave, so you may also need to select the card in Audio --> S/PDIF Audio Renderer

saw a dumb show the other night (man vs weird) featuring this Biba Struja guy who does 'feats' with electricity.


this gets the gist across:



so later on, with the smell of electrified bullshit still affronting my nostrils i looked for some kind of debunking thing, and found this guy (he's good value):
