5.1 AAC to 5.1 PCM - with LAV?

Recommended Posts

Years ago I used the Shark007 codecs and would configure AC3 filter to convert all my AAC 5.1 audio tracks to AC3 5.1.


These days I'm using LAV filters (like most people here I expect) and I hadn't really considered what was happening with my older videos that have AAC multi-channel audio track (all my new stuff is DD or DTS).


So, it appears that it just gets output as 2 channel PCM - does anyone know how to configure the LAV Audio Decoder to enable 5.1 PCM? Or do I have to resort to AC3 filter again?

I've found that playing 5.1 AAC as PCM is fine. Just make sure you have Windows audio configured as at least 5.1 otherwise you'll 2 channel instead.
