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?

Welcome to the forum!
here is the official document explaining how the transition from the old to the new Edge will happen
How to access the old version of Microsoft Edge after installing the new version
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.
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:
Do I need to install something to get it to work?

Take a computer with at least 3 analog connectors.
Use mainspeakers och headphone on regular out.
Connect extra headphones on surround and configure speaker settings to ex 5.1 and play testtones in settingmenu.
Now playback these official tracks from Dolby digital. ex Leaf
You will have surround in old Edge (since 2015) but not in the new Edge chromium.
If you download the file ( 3dots in right low corner) and playback in mediaplayer it works great.
I cant find any other browser that can output surround, so the old Edge was one of a kind.
