Thanks Carl.  I have changed the command and it works without waring.
ffplay -i ~/Movies/More\ Than\ You\ Know.mp4 -af "pan=stereo|FL<FL+FC+BL+SL|FR<FR+FC+BR+SR"

I think online documentation should be fixed.  How do you think?

Well, I have got use pan filter just a result of try and error.  https://trac.ffmpeg.org/wiki/AudioChannelManipulation seems to suggest me to use -ac 2 option, but my 5.1ch mp4 does not play full audio with -ac 2 option...

Or is there correct way to downmix audio any other?
