@wsoltys Nice catch! But it should be fixed as "std::max( ... , 2)"
This is intended to use mono devices and devices with unknown number of channels as stereo devices.


I have to admit that video/audio isn't my terrain and I just try to dig into it. PKEY_AudioEngine_DeviceFormat returns us what the user has selected not what the hw is capable of. Since the layoutsByChCount array is limited to 9 entries it should be guarded. As layoutsByChCount has a valid entry for 1 channel (AE_CH_FC) I thought it would be okay.
@DDDamian: thoughts?

Damian Huckle

You're both right:

  • it should be guarded to protect against layouts greater than the layoutByChCount array
  • it should never be mono (the channel remapper will force mono -> stereo regardless, so having a mono output here would be bad).
