That's why i said that it isn't necessary to support MLP decoding
for DVD-Audio.The MLP was a patent from Meridian and now it
is property of Dolby.But the DVD-Audio is a flexible format.It support
both Linear PCM & MLP with sampling ranges from 44.1 to 192KHz
for both PCM 16 & 24Bit analysis.As for channel configuration it support from Stereo to 5.1.
The MLP lossless compression is used normally for high (88.2 to 96Khz) sampling range
multichannel programs or to save disc space in more complicated disc configurations
with multiple formats in it (Stereo,Multichannel & Dolby Digital).
The point is that nowadays someone can author it's own DVD-Audio
discs with only Linear PCM contents very easy.There are enough applications
for that.Look at Wavelab (5 & 6),Minnetonka DiscWelder or Cirlinca DVD Audio Solo.
The last is very affordable software at just $45!.I am using this software with excellent
.That's why i want to enable support for this format.It isn't necessary to play
commercial DVD-Audio titles with CPPM encryption...
It's time to upgrade to a more flexible audio format than the old crap CD
