Convert AAC 5.1 to AC3 5.1 on the CLIENT side rather than the SERVER?

Hey, I have a Sonos Beam 5.1 setup & Nvidia shield. The Beam doesn't support AAC 5.1, so I need to use the 'transcode unsupported audio' option inside of the Emby App. However, I've noticed that this forces it to transcode on the server side, while other players like Kodi can easily transcode it on the fly on the client side.

Is there a way to convert AAC 5.1 to AC3 5.1 on the client side of the Emby app instead? Would setting it to use an external player work?

Hi.  That isn't possible at this time but it isn't transcoding now.  It is just remuxing and converting the audio which is a pretty light process.
