I have ripped my DVD collection to a media server, and to save space I only encoded 5.1 audio. I use Rokus and a software package called Roksbox to play the movies on our home theater system and our other TVs.
However, if I try to play them on Windows Media Player on my PC, I get video but no sound. I assume that's because the Media Player can't decode the 5.1 audio track. Is anyone aware of a codec I can install that will let me play 5.1 audio? I'm running Windows 7 Home Premium.
I only have two speakers on my PC, but I assume that will still work like it does on our regular TVs (the Rokus on those TVs are set to 5.1 surround even though the TVs only have two speakers).
