Audio conversion issue

Hi,

I'm finally to a point in my project where I had to use a Part II movie.

I've run into an audio conversion issue that I've not encountered with my other two movie sources.

I am using HeadAC3he to convert my ac3 to a PCM (i.e. wav).


The issue is this:

the movie file is 2:28:50 long, but the converted wav file comes out to only 2:04:12.

thinking it was a "bug" with HeadAC3he, I used BeSweet and xviD4 to convert the ac3 to a wav---all come out to somewhere around 2:04:12.

I've mucked around with a variety of settings with in all 3 of the above programs and each test conversion comes out about the same length.

Thinking it was a "glitch" in my original rip, I went back to the source dvd, using anyDVD HD [too bad that slysoft has closed down!], re-ripped the movie, re-demuxed the audio and did all the above again.

The result: 2:04:12 (approx.)


What am I missing here? :sad:

Forgot to mention in the above post:

all 3 programs say that the input file (the ac3) is the correct length of 2:28:50 [the full length of the movie], but none of them are converting them to that length . . . .

Try using eac3to to convert the audio to w64.

Code:
eac3to input.ac3 output.w64

If you need to downmix to 2.0, do this instead.

Code:
eac3to input.ac3 output.w64 -downDpl
