Trying to rip bd’s to mp4 and keep the dolby audio intact so my media server sends the audio out “RAW” or bit stream and then receiver deals with the audio.
The video settings do not seem to have any impact. I get great results with either h264 or mpeg4.
AAC or AC3 also over all do not seem to matter.
If I set the audio option to 5.1 I end up with multichannel PCM in the final mp4 and if I set my media server to HDMI LPCM Multichannel out I have multichannel sound at my receiver. Sounds quite good.
If I select any of the Dolby options the final file only has 2 channel audio. Verified with file properties for the audio component.
I tried a couple of bd’s with a hd audio track and a ac3 audio track. Selected the AC3 audio track when making the mp4 and AC3 Dolby.
Still only had 2 channel audio in the final file.
It feels like I’m missing something, some setting.
What do I need to tell DVDFab in terms of audio settings in BD Ripper so that the mp4 will have dolby which I can send out raw and let my receiver decompress it?
Do I need to select a different file type in general and not use mp4?
