[FFmpeg-user] How to play stereo stream as stereo on Windows 10

I stream stereo FLAC from Ubuntu 22.04 with command:

ffmpeg -f pulse -i "remote.monitor" -acodec pcm_s16le -ar 48000 -f s16le -ac 2 "udp://"
and play this stereo stream correctly on macOS with this command:

ffplay -nodisp -acodec -ac 2 pcm_s16le -ar 48000 -f s24le -i udp://
But if I try to play this stereo strem (with the same command) on Windows 10 ffmpge says:

"Failed to set value '2' for option 'ac': Option not found" - and plays only one channel mono

I will also add that when I play the same FLAC file locally in this Windows 10 installation both channels plays correctly in stereo.

Would you help me please how to convince ffmpge (ffplay) to play that stereo stream as stereo on Windows 10.

Kind regards
