Hi!

My first post so I hope I do it right.

I watch much movies on my HTPC (Viaplay). And last time I tried Edge beta it did not support Dolby Digital.

 

Will Edge (Chromium) have Dolby Digital support in the future?

 

Also I don't know how it will work when Edge (Chromium) is ready/stable. Will Windows update force old Edge to be updated to Edge (Chromium), or Will old Edge remain?

Hi @Eazy1 

Welcome to the forum! 

 

here is the official document explaining how the transition from the old to the new Edge will happen

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/DeployEdge/microsoft-edge-sysupdate-windows-updates

 

How to access the old version of Microsoft Edge after installing the new version

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/DeployEdge/microsoft-edge-sysupdate-access-old-edge

 

 

as far as I can tell and my tests shows me, Edge insider Canary Version 80.0.344.0 (Official build) canary (64-bit) Supports it.

 

https://developer.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoft-edge/testdrive/demos/dolbyaudioexperience/

 

you can test it in this website, I'm getting audio in all the scenes on both Edge classic and Edge insider canary (except for HLS on Edge canary), though when I test it on Google chrome canary, there is no audio.

Hi and thanx for your response!


I just now tried the latest canary (same version you mentioned) but I get no Dolby Digital. This is on viaplay.se I don't know if it is Viaplay that does something wrong or if it is Edge chromium. I do have Dolby Digital on Edge classic.


I have no Dolby Digital on Edge chromium trying this, but I do on Edge classic:

http://audioexperience.dolby.com/

 

Do I need to install something to get it to work?

 

No you don't have to install anything,
in this website http://audioexperience.dolby.com/ you can't get any audio on Edge canary, in none of the devices?
that's strange because I have.
which Windows 10 version are you using?

@HotCakeX 

I get audio, but not Dolby Digital. Amplifier says prologic II.

When you get audio that should mean your browser supports dolby digital. that's the whole purpose of that test website.
what amplifier ?

@HotCakeX 

Its a Denon AVR-X1000. But I do got Dolby Digital with Edge classic on that site but not with Edge canary. I guess Edge canary sends out stereo only to my receiver. Only a guess...

 

I wish I had some content that i could test it as well. i know dolby digital uses AC3 and there are AC3 test stuff like this
https://archive.org/download/5.1SurroundSoundTestFilesVariousFormatsAACAC3MP4DTSWAV/surroundTest%20-...
but Edge insider and classic both download the file instead of playing it so

 

by the way i'm getting these results in Version 80.0.351.0 (Official build) canary (64-bit)

https://html5test.com/

 

 

can't figure out whether it supports it or not in the end, the results are mixed

 

@HotCakeX 

 

Thanks for the useful links. Hopefully clarity will be provided at some point.

Yes hopefully..
