Transcoding Only DTS Audio of a given container?

Post by Ranmaniac » Thu Mar 10, 2011 8:22 pm

My primary media player client is an LG LE5400 TV. It handles just about any video you throw at it with no transcoding. It handles just about all audio except for DTS. I havent even installed ffmpg yet so nothing has been transcoded thus far. Is there a way that I can set up a config to transcode only the DTS audio of a given container, but stream the video as is? I know that AC3Filter can do this on the fly... I dont know if FFMPEG can.

Is there docs or a set of full instructions for installing ffmpg and or other needed support for transcoding, including editing the config files?

Here's a great script that I use:

Here's some forum discussion about it by the author:
