Spatial audio for AirPods Pro

Hmmm I definitely don’t get the soap opera effect when doing it, otherwise I wouldn’t consider it an option. I’m not sure where the disconnect would be.

woohooo time to splurge on airpods pro now!

Most of my files are Dolby Digital 5.1, but when I turn on Spatial Audio on my Apple TV 4K the option for infuse is “Spatial Stereo”. Sounds awesome on my AirPods Max, but why aren’t I getting surround?

Can you check to ensure you’re running 7.2? The version info can be found by scrolling to the bottom of Infuse > Settings.

Thanks James.

Yes - it says Infuse Pro 7.2 (3859)

Do these videos have multiple audio tracks?

Can you check to ensure a 5.1 track is selected in the Audio section of the Playback Menu (swipe down while a video is playing).

That was it! Thank you so much - it sounds incredible through these AirPod Max. Wow.

Looks like a bunch of my movies have both 2.0 and 5.1 tracks, and Infuse seems to default to 2.0. Any way I can have it default to 5.1, or do I just need to manually make sure?

Thanks again. Happy customer right here.

Hooray! :raised_hands:

It sounds like the 2.0 tracks may be tagged as ‘default’, so that is why Infuse is selecting them.

You can have Infuse ignore this tag by changing the Audio Language option in Infuse > Settings from Auto to your desired language.

Great. Thanks again!

Thank you so much James!! I tested it last night with a couple files and formats and it all worked beautifully :partying_face: No more remuxing & re-encoding audio to make it work. Now it just works™ :partying_face:

As someone with shared walls that can’t always take advantage of my surround system, I can’t overstate how huge this feature is for me. I don’t feel like I’m missing too much of the experience now when I have to switch to headphones at night. I look forward to seeing if there is a touch of improvement left for lossy Atmos audio that would match what you get with Netflix and TV+. Thank you @james for your quick implementation of spatial audio!
