Hello everybody.

Quite a few users have complained about 5.1 audio output (analog, not spdif) 
not working with VLC for win32. Apparently it produces garbled sound.
The worrying thing is that I also don't recall any user reporting success 
while playing 5.1 audio.

Unfortunately I can't test this myself as I don't have a 5.1 system here.
This is why I'm asking for reports on this issue (success or failure).

For testing you can use: 
and this nice test sample: 

Also, if somebody has the means to test this and the competences to fix the 
problem in the directx audio output, I'd be glad to help him out setting up 
a build environment for vlc.
