I usually watching Blu-Rays with PowerDVD 16. For some time now, instead of a monitor and a 5.1 sound system I used before, I use a television via HDMI now. The television only has Stereo.
When I had the 5.1 sound system I usually turned the center a lot louder than the rest to properly hear voices.
Now, with the television, I cannot mix the channels at all. PowerDVD or Windows (don't now which) automatically downmix the channels to stereo somehow. But the voices are too quiet most of the time.
How can I change that. My first instinct was to have a virtual sound device (with 6 channels) where I can customize the mix myself and the result is then send to the real sound device. I haven't found anything on this.
Via Google I found somethings about "AC3Filter" and "ffmpeg" and that those applications are able to properly downmix the sound. But I haven't found anything on how this works, only that it should work.
Can anyone explain to me, how this works?
PS: I know that PowerDVD is propably not able to use 3rd party filters and stuff. So I think VLC or similar players are also possible.
