    Hi all,
    This maybe easy and I just haven't spotted the relevant area within Popcorn, but I was wondering - can I set Popcorn so that it will extract and convert an audio track(say FLAC to AC3) from an MV file, but not to remux it back with the video file?
    For my use, I need to mux again anyway.
    Thanks in advance. No biggie, but it would be handy if possible.

    Are you referring to a MKV file? Popcorn Audio convert doesn't re-encode the video only the audio and puts the new audio within the original MKV container. I have found a way of doing it which is quicker than the Popcorn audio converter by extracting the original audio using MKVextractGUI (found in MKVToolkit) then using Pazera Free Audio Extractor to do the conversion from whatever to AC3 and then using MKVmergeGui to put the audio back with the video!!! Lots of steps I know but it works a lot quicker on my system, otherwise just use Popcorn audio converter and make a cup of coffee or feed the chooks!

    Thank you netmask56 - yes of course it's only the audio that is re-encoded. Being an audio converter!
    Anyway - thank you very, VERY much for pointing me in the direction of Pazera audio converter - it's brilliant - does exactly what I require. The application perfectly encodes from DTS 1509 to AC3 640 - really, really quickly - and doesn't mux it back with the video, which is what I wanted.
    You probably already know this, but there's no need to extract the audio from the mkv - Pazera will take it out of the mkv for you.
    Why I need and love it so much, is because I do a lot of taking an audio file from one mkv container, and mux it with an video file from another mkv. So this is perfectamundo!
    Thanks again - belatedly!
