as you can see. Domething with A LOT of volume seems to be there in the start and the end according to aizd.

Playing back the PCM .wav gives offcouse a very low volume due to the volume adjustments. but also the file has a noise in the start and end that mpc didn't produce when playing the ac3 file.

Is there a way to fix this. or to replace the firts and last couples of frames with "empty" ones?

True issue.

I can confirm this issue. However, it seems to be an issue with only a small number of AC3's. I've processed plenty, and this is the first where the issue is found.

Code:
X:\MYDVD>azid.exe AudioFile_81.ac3 audio.wav
Azid AC3 Decoder 1.9 (build 922)

Here's a sample from the very beginning of my file.

http://www.qfpost.com/download.do?ge...5729af683dd85a

I tried run the same AC3 through a simple "eac3to.exe audiofile_81.ac3 audio.wav". Works a charm, no artifacts introduced. Has anyone got a clue what this is coming from with Azid? Known issue? I'd be thankful for threads and reference. Oh, I hope you guys don't consider it "thread necromancy" to bump this thread after almost six years. It just felt like the right thing to do, instead of posting a new thread.

Cheers!

We need your ac3 file (first 1 MB), the wav output is useless to test.
