Hey, I’ve been backing up some dvds using Nero Recode 3. I have been using the default Nero Digital AVC profile. I haven’t changed any of the encoder settings for the AVC but instead of using AAC for the audio I want to use the original AC3 from the DVD. I’m not doing this to get 5.1 sound but simply because I don’t like the normalizing method that Nero Recode uses. For example gun fire sounds muffled and on the other hand, some whispers are too loud.
But when I do this the resultant mp4 file contains the AC3 stream but I can’t hear any audio and the frame rate is a bit jittery. No matter what media program I use to play it I have the same problem. If I do use AAC, the file works perfectly. I have never had issues playing mp4 files containing AC3 before this so I don’t know what the issue is.
I could use other programs such as Vobedit and Virtualdubmod to mux the audio into the mp4 but it would be a lot quicker if I could fix the problem with Recode. Does anybody know anything about this???
