No, I'm thinking something went wrong during demuxing the .m2ts files, which is why I asked what software you used to demux the audio. If it was eac3to you'd end up with a .thd extension, so you either renamed it or you used something else. I'd be interested in how you ended up with the file so I'll know how to avoid such problems.

So, have you found time to try if reencoding the audio straight from the .m2ts without demuxing it first works?

actually, that approach could be used for every DTS-HD (MA) file that Arcsoft can't decode correctly and respectively eac3to can't.

i wish eac3to be able to write such 140 bytes headers for easier decoding of DTS-HD (MA) file outside eac3to in case that is necessary.

That's weird. I have a hard time believing that the new eac3to is responsible for the problems. Maybe something else changed on your PC? It seems nobody else has this problem.

Newer versions (e.g. 1.1.0.7) of the dtsdecoder.dll seem to have this problem. Older versions (e.g. 1.1.0.0) work just fine.

Do you have any plan to support these new defaults?
Yes.

It is not possible with eac3to because the resampling library is limited to specific stretching factors.

With audio files -slowdown means modify the duration with a coefficient of (1001/960) always.
FWIW, "-slowdown" always defines a target FPS value of 23.976. You can do "-24.000 -slowdown" and it will do a 24.000 -> 23.976 slowdown.

Episode 3-6 don't show anywhere. If I use MakeMKV I can see all episodes listed out individually to select. Is there anything you can think of that would be causing this issue?
I've seen this before and just thought that there were not any playlists for the other episodes. But maybe there are and there's a bug in eac3to. Can you please zip up the playlist and clipinf folders for me?

Unlike other programs like tsMuxeR, eac3to at least recognizes that there are subtitles there. But -demux only extracts the video and audio.
I don't know how to demux DVB subtitles in any format that can be used by other applications.

Just use "eac3to source c:\whatever\movie.*" that will demux all tracks to any desired target path.

Simply joining multiple m2ts files makes problems because after joining it is not possible for eac3to (or any other program) to quickly see that the file was joined from multiple smaller files and that the timestamps do not match and where each smaller file starts and ends in the joined file. This is the way it is. If you manually join m2ts files, you'll have to live with this effect.

Here is my scenario:
1 - eac3to to demux video in MKV container and convert audio to AC3
2 - TsMuxer to mux audio and video in a M2TS container
3 - playback of the M2TS file with the PS3

Video is H.264. When the file is decoded by the PS3, I have many macroblocks, and the result is the same whatever the version of eac3to (3.18, 3.21 and 3.22).
If at step 1, instead of demuxing video in MKV container, I demux the video in a H.264 file, then the playback with the PS3 is fine without macroblocks.

Note that all these files (M2TS and MKV) are played correctly on the PC.

So the problem is relative to the usage of MKV container, either when produced by eac3to, or when used as input by TsMuxer. And the problem is noticeable only when the final file is played with the PS3.
If you do this:

(1) demux blu-ray directly, by using eac3to
(2) mux video to MKV by using eac3to, then demux again by using eac3to

The demuxed raw h264 video file produced by both methods is identical. So the problem must obviously be caused by tsMuxeR not handling MKV input correctly.

I've checked this and all decoders output the same volume - even libav which definitely doesn't do dialnorm processing for DTS when eac3to removes it from the headers. I believe that the volume was already changed (hard coded) by the DTS encoder. And I believe that ArcSoft totally ignores the dialnorm when decoding.

One key information is that decoding the track with ArcSoft and Sonic decoders output bit perfect identically results. Which means that decoding should be lossless which would not be the case if dialnorm processing was active.

When creating Mono-Wavs instead of flac, the three tracks are correctly titled L, R and C.
The FLAC is correct. The latest madFlac v1.9 now also outputs the correct channelmask (0x7). The previous version used channelmask 0xffffffff. If you still get incorrect channel assignments then it's the fault of some other filter, maybe even the audio renderer. eac3to and madFlac definitely handle 3.0 correctly now.

I've checked. There's no specific limitation for the "-edit" command. You cannot edit in such a way, though, that looping wouldn't work. E.g. "-edit=0:00:01,+2000ms" is not allowed, but "-edit=0:00:05,+2000ms" works just fine.

Run the bat, wait for eac3to to stop outputting. Might be a while, but it will. Either put the two files in the folder eac3to is in or modify the bat.
I think I got a fix for this one. Could you please try with the next eac3to build and report back?

Movie Downfall
Code:
eac3to v3.22
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
1) 00014.mpls, 00034.m2ts+00014.m2ts, 2:35:21
   - Chapters, 35 chapters
   - VC-1, 1080p24 /1.001 (16:9)
   - AC3, German, stereo, 48kHz

00034.m2ts
M2TS, 1 video track, 1 audio track, 0:00:37, 29.766p
1: Chapters, 35 chapters
2: VC-1, 1080p24 /1.001 (16:9)
3: AC3, German, 2.0 channels, 192kbps, 48kHz, dialnorm: -27dB

00014.m2ts
M2TS, 1 video track, 1 audio track, 0:00:29, 24p /1.001
1: VC-1, 1080p24 /1.001 (16:9)
2: AC3, German, 5.1 channels, 640kbps, 48kHz, dialnorm: -27dB
Hmmmmm... This is a difficult one. Sometimes there might be a small intro with different channels before the real movie which I could easily ignore without doing any damage. But then there might be movies where actually different parts have different audio tracks (e.g. seamless branching theatrical cut vs. director's cut). How can eac3to know? E.g. if the first m2ts file is 10 minutes long, shall I still cut it away? For an intelligent human it's not so difficult to find out whether an m2ts file can be dropped or not, but for a computer program it's much more difficult. I fear that if I simply drop the first m2ts file if it has different audio track properties, then I might damage some real movies.

Thoughts?

(BTW, the frame rate is not different, eac3to is more or less "guessing" the m2ts framerate, it's sometimes wrong. The video track framerate is reliable and it's identical.)

thanks for the new version again

a few questions: what would be the problem if you left all those small .m2ts files listed? a overly long amount of different playlists? is there maybe any way to say that eac3to should list, and not cut away, all small .m2ts files of certain playlists only, e.g. such playlists which contain the 2-3 biggest .m2ts files? (sometimes, there are extras on a BD which are bigger than the actual movie)

regarding audio, so dtsma mono tracks should work now. so whats still left that doesnt work properly? what about those 6.1 dtsma/truehd/lpcm tracks? 2.0 dtsma? anything with "strange setup"? dts express afaik was a problem of non-existing mkvmerge support.

what are those dts-hd tracks with additional header, what does it mean? again, do we have to do any re-demuxing of our dtsma track collection to have compability with hardware receivers when just bitstreaming the file?

thanks!

There are many Blu-Rays with literally hundreds of playlists. You'd be burried by useless information.

The only problem I'm aware of are those 7.1 tracks listed as "strange setup". Everything else, including mono, stereo and 6.1 should work perfectly, if you use the right ArcSoft decoder version (e.g. 1.1.0.0 works fine).

If you don't know what it means that you don't need it. No need to re-demux anything.

well, I dont have a HD receiver yet, so I wouldnt know if I needed it but if I had to redo something then I'd like to have done that by the time I have that kind of receiver, thats why I ask.

No.
would it be possible that eac3to leaves a message when it cuts away some small parts of those playlists it displays? then you dont have to check the playlist of the main movie manually each time for those files, but only if they are really included in the list for that movie.

The answer would be 'depends' on what you want to do ultimately (have all streams separetly demuxed, have 1 .ts/.m2ts/.mkv file, or the full BD structure).

Are you (Atak_Snajpera) looking to simply demux the playlist, or recode the audio? There are a few options available currently:

Use 00014.m2ts instead of 00014.mpls for example
Use another tool (eg tsMuxeR) on each .m2ts and then correct the playlist.

Hello Madshi,

I tested the new processing .DTSHD functionality, it seems to be working with all the files I threw at it so far.

However, I found that demuxing a .DTSHD file introduced a 21ms delay to the file.

I verified by demuxing the original WAV, demuxing the encoded WAV with DTS Stream Player (both matched perfectly) and demuxing with EAC3TO (+21ms added). Waveforms were checked with Adobe Audition.

FYI, before EAC3TO added this functionality, I was demuxing the .DTSHD files with TSMUXER, TSMUXER mentioned "bad frame found, resycning stream" - this also introduced the same +21ms delay.

Cheers,

-jj-

when you demux it from what? you also get a delay now when demuxing it from the original blu-ray source?
