    Hi all,
    Like the subject line says, I searched, but the results didn't yield anything useful.
    Here's what I did:
    I took my 6 mono files and used Audition to create a 6 channel wave. I loaded my video into VirtualDub with no problems. I loaded my wave with no problems. I attempted to play the clip... problem ...
    I received the error "0xfffe" and was told that it didn't have the decompressor necessary to play the clip/audio.
    I thought that it might be a problem with the fact that I was using a 6 channel wave. So, I created an AC3 with Soft Encode. I tried adding that "stream" in VirtualDubMod. Again, all seems fine until I try to play the clip. Then that damn error occurs.
    I used GSpot and it told me what I had pretty much assumed: Codec NOT installed.
    So, what codec do I need? Where do I download it? What should I do? What shouldn't I do? Etc., etc., etc.
    Thanks for any help you can provide.
    P.S. - Reading over my text, I see much of it comes off as flat out obnoxious. Sorry about that. It just happens when you're very frustrated

  2. ac3acm for ac3 in vdub/vdubmod

    extensible wave format is different than pcm wav , not all programs accept both

    if you exported from audition as microsoft wav or pcm wav, vdubmod should accept it

    Try using Virtualdub with the AC3 plugin to insert the 6 channel AC3 and direct stream copy the audio. Also install the AC3ACM decompressor as poisondeathray suggested.

    Okay... sorry for the delay in reply.
    The recommendations you three made did work in VirtualDub and VirtualDubMod. Though I don't know which installation it was that made it work.
    However (there's always a catch), when I converted the AVI to a VOB, in order to play it in WinDVD, the video was fine, but the audio was cringe-worthy.
    It's difficult to describe what it sounds like. It's sort of a rapid, pulsing, white noise-like, static mess... without a single trace of the actual audio that should be playing.
    Does anyone know what could be causing this/how to resolve it? I'm lost, since all other AC3s (contained in my DVDs) work just fine.
    Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.

    try playing the 6ch wav with winamp. it has a codec for that. if it plays fine then the conversion to ac3 didn't go well.

    Are you sure you didn't mean "did go well"? ... or am I still confused?
    FWIW, I tried the AC3 in Winamp and it did work fine. However, I'd like to know why I had that trouble I described with WinDVD.
    Thanks again.
