MKV MKA M4A
Hope all is well with you and yours during these trying times.
Thanks for all the work you've put into Strawberry, you've done an amazing job over the last few years for us audiophiles. Currently it works perfectly to pass all my 5.1 multich flac and wav files to my Marantz pre/pro over HDMI.
I'm trying to get my Atmos files to work in SB but have a few issues I'm hoping you might help with.What I'm wondering if it's possible to get either MKV, or MKA, to be recognized as a file types, these two containers will carry Atmos.
Also M4A will carry Atmos but when I attempt to open a file I get the error popup
"Your GStreamer installation is missing a plug-in."
Any idea which plugin this could be or how to determine that?
As far as I know, when SB is configured to pass bit perfect to Alsa it should be able to also carry Atmos in one of these containers. But much more than this is beyond my skillset. Would really love to get Atmos working here.

Matroska isn't recognized because TagLib does not read it in the latest stable release of TagLib.
However, the TagLib 2 (unrelased version) supports it, but no-one is working on that currently. So the only way to get Strawberry to read it is to use TagLib from unreleased code.
I don't think it is easy to get Atmos working, looks like there isn't an open source decoder for it. I found this:
@jonas Dolby Atmos can carry an embedded Dolby TrueHD stream, and on commercially released Blu-rays that's always the case. TrueHD is a lossless codec which can can be bit-perfectly decoded by FFmpeg.
