OK madshi; as you know as well, i've trusted always his knowledge on eac3to but i still have not understood why eac3to can not use nero9 filter as forced decoder?

Second, is is possible to manage eac3to to select nero9 first and if there isn't any, this time to select nero7 as secondary choice?

* added (E-)AC3 2.0 "Headphone" detection
* NeroAacEnc is now fed with up to 32bit float (if available)
* resampling option "-quality=low|high|ultra" not supported, anymore
* new option "-fast" switches SSRC resampler to fast, but low quality mode
* new option "-r8brain" forces use of r8brain resampler instead of SSRC
* added support for AES3 PCM streams in TS container
* started working on encoder plugin interface
I was wrong stating that the NeroAAC encoder wouldn't support floating point input. It does.
thanks!

one question though, is the -slowdown problem of that h264 50i .ts sample fixed yet?

Any detail on this? Or it's a surprise?

Thanks for the update.

@madshi,
Just fyi, the version shown by 2.75 is v0.00.

@rica,
What part of "DOESN'T SUPPORT NERO 9" do you not understand? Give it a rest with Nero 9 already.

Almost anything is "possible" if I take the time to implement. But right now eac3to does not support Nero 9 decoders. It's as easy as that.

Didn't get around fixing that yet. But it's on top of my priority list.

I've been asked to provide a way to add encoding plugins. Will there be many plugins? I've no idea...

Thanks. I've re-uploaded a fixed v2.75 with no changes apart from working version information.

I tried a track from a DVD were the box states many times it's "Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround EX" but eac3to 2.75 detected it as plain ol AC3 5.1.

Here it is if you wanna check it out: http://www.sendspace.com/file/8r29v3

So you can use a hexeditor, search for the first 0x47 byte and remove the first few bytes of the file, until the fifth (or first) byte is 0x47. If that doesn't work, just repeat the process another 2-3 times. At some time eac3to will properly detect and handle the file.
So you did this to the sample I gave you and it demuxed fine? Then I don't know how to give you an example to work with. I remember it occurred on Predator, if you have access to that disc. You couldn't simply make a switch to simple ignore problem in non-clean tracks?

That track is definitely not flagged as EX. It might still be EX, though. Some EX tracks are not flagged as such. But I can say with certainty that eac3to not showing this track as EX is correct.

Yes, but I only tested with v2.74.

I don't have Predator. Why don't you simply retry with the latest eac3to version? There was a bug which resulted in eac3to sometimes aborting processing at the very end of movies. That was fixed in v2.74. So probably Predator should work fine now.

As i can remember, the same BDīs using an older eac3to version < 2.58 doesnīt produce this errors.

A good try will be Conair/German BD. Try to assemble
the GERMAN DTS Track. On the cut point there is a loud
spike on the decoded file (destination format can be WAV or AC3 - result is the same)
I finally got around getting the German Con Air Blu-Ray to test this and I can't reproduce any problem with the German DTS track. No wrong loud spike for me. Ok, at the cut point there is this loud plane sound. That is some kind of spike. But it's supposed to be that way and it's that way if you play the separate m2ts parts, too. And it's in the AC3 track, too. So it's not caused by eac3to. Don't know if that is the spike you were talking about? Anyway, do you still have this spike problem with the latest eac3to version? And are you sure that it's caused by eac3to and not already in the original audio track?

Edit: Screw that, I *can* reproduce the problem, but only under specific circumstances...

You don't need google is near here, in this Audio Encoding thread

Only if bsid = 6 and xbsi2e = 1the tool can work safely

If bsid = 8 and Timecode2 = 1 maybe also can work but I never see Timecode2 = 1

Of course monsters.ac3 can't be EXme (bsid=8, Timecode2=0) safely.

The GUI listed in the first post works fine. Have you tried that?

just as info, theres an eac3 commentary track on the kung fu panda blu-ray (its quite similar to the other ac3 commentary, but seems to be slightly edited differently at some places; or the frame rate is different, as in reviews only 1 commentary track is mentioned)

Just wondering if there was any thought to adding standard input to eac3to? I was looking to decode a tta lossless stream and wanted to feed it directly into eac3to for dts encoding.

BTW, thanks for the nice multi-use tool.
