I got ffplay.exe to work, which confirmed my first findings that the
volume did not change. Same volume before/left and after/right.

Bur after applying the 'lavfi/ebur128: fix format negociation for
output' patch (with an offset of 28 lines) this one ended with a

[Parsed_ebur128_4 @ 0000000003fbb740] Summary:

  Integrated loudness:
    I:          10.0 LUFS
    Threshold: 377.0 LUFS

  Loudness range:
    LRA:         0.0 LU
    Threshold: 367.0 LUFS
    LRA low:    10.0 LUFS
    LRA high:   10.0 LUFS
[Parsed_ebur128_2 @ 000000000033d2e0] Summary:

  Integrated loudness:
    I:         -41.6 LUFS
    Threshold: -51.7 LUFS

  Loudness range:
    LRA:         6.0 LU
    Threshold: -61.7 LUFS
    LRA low:   -45.0 LUFS
    LRA high:  -39.0 LUFS

FFplay had the same behaviour: very noisy and the graph on the right
side became completely filled, up to 10 LUFS. I know now my
filter_omplex works and changes the volume. But not yet to the desired
loudness. Closing in...
