Has anyone else downloaded the first two episodes of Seto-Otaku's Blu-Ray for ef ~A Tale of Melodies~? Is anyone else getting a fuzzy audio quality, or is it just VLC not capable of playing in Blu-ray stuff, or is it just my computer's sound card sucks? I had a hard time telling when using Zoomplayer though if the fuzziness/extra echoing was still there.

Could someone check this out? Thanks.

The audio sounds fine to me! Sometimes I get this problem of fuzzy/scratchy noise when playing video files. My advice would be to restart your computer and see if it plays fine. If that doesn't work I would reinstall your sound driver and then test the file again. If it's still playing up then try it on Zoomplayer/Media Player Classic with the CCCP codec pack. It should work there. If that works VLC is being rubbish. If you can't play it on Zoomplayer/Media Player Classic then it's probably a sound card issue.

As a little note I used media player classic as my player and had the CCCP codec pack plus the CoreAVC codec (the CoreAVC codec used for this file).

If none of monsta's above help works for you kit, try updating your sound driver, it could just be that it needs an update.

My sound card is brand new...in fact the computer itself is relatively new. I have no problem playing other video files, it's just this one file that sounds weird in VLC. Zoomplayer I think it's fine but not entirely sure, same with media player classic.

I think it's either VLC is not playing it right or the audio quality from the blu-ray rip is poor. This is really what I want to confirm. Example would be at around 10 minutes through the video...it's rather clear there's something wrong there in VLC, not so much in Media Player Classic, and even less in Zoom Player....

The audio sounds clear throughout. Then again I'm using Media Player Classic with CoreAVC (I disabled the mkv codec used in CCCP). Hmm but it should still work with CCCP. If you were using that codec pack I would only expect lag not distorted sound. My guess is that it's a problem with VLC rather than a poor sound-rip.

ok thanks, I think it is just VLC since VLC may not be able to play blu-ray stuff properly yet, especially if Zoomplayer makes it essentially unnoticeable...I'm still downloading episode 2 so I'll see how that goes...

okay so it turns out I get the same problem in the second episode release by the same group. I took their newly released ef ~A Tale of Memories~ episode 1 (blu-ray) and compared it and it was just fine. It matched Menclave's original TV release if not better. So my conclusion is the audio rip from the Blu-Ray disc was just poor. I'll leave this thread open for a bit if anyone else can comment or give feedback on their experience for this release.

It could always be the codecs VLC is using or the speed of your computer. I'm assuming that the rip is rather high quality and so may not play back well on an older computer. Also I've had some rather odd problems with 5.1 audio in the past where it tries to split the audio across 5 speakers when only 2 are plugged in. I have no idea what happened and it fixed itself soon after so I just figured it was a random occurrence.

The computer is new...it was bought in August so old computer is out of the question.
Here are the specs:
2.1 GHz CPU
4 GB Ram
AMD Turion 64 bit
Windows Vista OS
I have no problem playing 5.1 audio on any of my other files that have those encodes, including Ghost in the Shell 2.0, 5 cm per second, ef ~a tale of memories~, Macross Frontier, etc... These are all blu-ray by the way.

I'm assuming that the computer is at least a dual-core as you bought it so recently so it should be up to the task.

I only had problems with certain videos when my computer was acting odd. It could be the way that the audio was encoded since there are many ways to encode audio even if you limit yourself to one codec. Even taking bitrate out of the picture there are many options and features that could not be implemented in the codec you are using and makes it sound wrong. Unfortunately with VLC you can't switch what codec you are using but if you have no problems with other players and thus other codecs it may just be how the audio was made.

EDIT: Feel free to close the topic whenever you like as your problem has been "fixed". Anything more added on would likely be off topic.

okay thanks, I'll check it out --closed--
