When we play videos from USB pendrive, the DD sound only works on pre-installed media player. Not other video players like vlc and Kodi even after turning on Allow Passthrough. Any solution for this? Kodi works a little better, but not like default one.

Same here in Hisense 55A71F. DD only work with stock Media player. Tried almost all media players and settings as well. So 5.1 users must get Dolby Digital supported Home Theatre, else you wont get real 5.1 effect. Dolby True Vision also works with stock player only.

Were your able to adjust brightness in VLC, just like we do in Android mobiles. Sometimes I have to rely on vlc which supports fast forward on 10bit videos that pre-installed player doesn’t.

Dont know.bro. I mainly use PC for playing movies. Because my 1.5 tb hard disk went dead(completely) after connecting to LED USB Port. So I dont take more risk connecting Hard disk to TV.

They do allow but need few more steps
For Kodi/MrMC

Settings >> System >> Audio >>

No. of channels – 2.0
Output confirguration – Best Match
Enable Passthrough
+ all other codec related options (DTS, ac3, eac3, TrueHD). You can skip those your A/V receiver can’t handle

I only use Plex on Kodi, not familiar with many addons
For plex, u need to setup a plex server on your PC (Same network)

Use Same Plex account on your TV and stream

You can also use NAS instead of PC

How to verify that it is real 5.1 effect not virtual.
I think you are getting virtual 5.1 effect in Kodi.
