Let me start by saying , if there is a guide that answers my question,
just point me to it.
I have read a few guides but they do not have enough info.
I have a AVI file (Divx) with AC3 audio.
#1. I run V-Dub and save the wave file.
#2. I use TMPGENC and I encode the file using the original video and the wave file from #1.
#3. The output MPEG 2 file , I burn to DVD (moviefactory 2).
#4. When I play the movie on my DVD player , there is no Surround sound , not even stereo.
What am I not doing.
thanks in advance

Is the initial wave file in stereo?Hello.
ho can i check for this to see if it is stereo ?
Find a program like Gold Wave, and load the video into it. It will show you what kind of audio it contains, and can also convert mono into stereo.Hello.
I had a problem with AC3 audio not converting right also, stumped me for over a week.
But i think I might have found a soloution..
when I tried to convert the AVI file in TMPGenc it always gave me an ACM failure, because it couldnt decompress the audio, but I found an AC3 Audio decompressor heres the link.
It worked flawlessly for me, let me know if it works out for ya
Step one is your problem, if you convert it to a wav the 5.1 is gone. Just use DVD2AVI to extract the ac3 file then when you make you DVD use that instead of the wav... Or maybe it's virtualDUb I'm thinking of.
You won't be able to use moviefactory though cause it doesn't support ac3. You could use ifoedit to author the dvd though.
