View Full Version : AC3 to MP2

13th December 2001, 18:45
Hi there,

posted something for this here in another forum at DOOM9.

Well how can i convert an AC3 file to mp2 without to create a wav file (this wav file would be lager than 2 GB; and this is not compatible with windows)

This ac3 file i got here is encoded in Stereo 192 KBIT and should be sampled to MP2 224 KBIT (for a VCD; i hate SVCD; these little beasts arn't compatible with a lot of my friends DVD players) with a normalized sound like DVD2AVI does this).

So how can i get this to work.

Azid won't work (i tried; maybe not too hard; but it's really hard to learn this program)

If any one got needfull hints, rell me

Thanks and regards

BeSweet can directly convert AC3 (or even VOB) to MP2 without any intermediate file.
download VOBtoMP3 v0.7 (http://www.doom9.org/Soft21/Files/Audio/VOBtoMP3v0.7.zip) & BeSweet v0.8a (http://rilanparty.com/vbb/attachment.php?s=&attachmentid=126).

or wait for BeSweet v0.81, to be released tommorow, with SSRC support.

if you find all configuration-switches annoyning, download the DanniDin's GUI - it's great !

Seems to me that these programs really hard to handle even this gui is something i don't understand how to use.

On the other side there is no Normalize option there. And that could be very bad. I hate this overload crackling in the speakers.

BTW ... your download options in your thread are not working

actually, it's very simple. write :
Be (http://dspguru.tripod.com/BeSweet_v0.81.zip)Sweet (http://rilanparty.com/vbb/attachment.php?s=&attachmentid=175) -core( -input [file.ac3] -output [file.mp2] ) -2lame( -b 128 ) -azid( -g max )

this will create mp2 with 128kbs, normalized.
