    Hi all,

    I've got a bunch of ripped Blu-Rays on my computer, many which I originally ripped and encoded as 6ch AAC. I now play all files through my Raspberry Pi, connected to my Onkyo receiver, which of course can't play 6ch AAC. I am using Popcorn MKV Audioconverter to re-encode the audio on these files to 5.1 AC3, so I can get surround sound. The problem is that I don't want to have to go into each and every one of my movie folders, and go into MediaInfo to see which movies are encoded with AAC audio. Is there any program or windows extension that will show me which files have AAC audio?

    Thanks!!

    You could select the root folder in mediainfo and it will scan all subfolders. Then choose view->sheet and you can see the audio codec pretty easy. I just miss a feature where you can order by audio codec.

    In Windows Explorer, Details mode, you should be able to add a column for audio codec, and then sort by it.

    Hmmm...I tried that before but couldn't find where it would let me select that as an option...will try again when I get home. This would be the easiest as I would be able to sort by codec.

    If you stated what operating system you were using, we could be more help.

    In XP, there is no codecs column so you have to use Haali Media Splitter in order to get the codecs column. Follow the directions in this thread...

    You may need to use Codec Tweak Tool or Media Preview Configuration to get Windows to see the codecs that Windows does not support.

    Thanks

    I am using Windows 8. There are hundreds of options of columns to choose and sort by in windows..but audio codec doesn't seem to be one of them.

    You might try dbpoweramp music converter. It has Windows Explorer shell integration. Here is a 21 day free trial of the full version. After 23 days it reverts to the free version.

    @DarrellS, I'm sure that dbpoweramp would be a real good option for audio-only files, but the OP needs to know the audio codec streams that reside within video files, and AFAIK dbpoweramp doesn't have video parsing capability.

    Yeah, I wasn't sure if it did or not, just that I have it on my computer and I have no problems seeing aac audio in my codecs column. Also when I hover my mouse over a video file, it shows all the information about the file and says dbpoweramp below the information. I can also right click on a video and choose convert to (dbpoweramp shell) audio file and it converts the audio file inside the video to whatever I choose. Obviously, you need to install all the dbpoweramp plugins and codecs from codec central.
