This worked before, so not sure what I am missing or if it is different file types or something.
I input (currently) a 2ch .ac3 file, outputting to stereo aac, pretty basic.
I had a multi-channel .ac3 file, and dts file, but was getting errors then, so wasn't sure if megui could downmix channels to stereo
anyway, I plug everything in, and queue it up, hit start, and instant error.

you probably have filter/codec issues
----[NoImage] DirectShowSource: Could not open as video or audio.
----[NoImage] Video returned: "DirectShowSource: RenderFile, the filter graph manager won't talk to me"
----[NoImage] Audio returned: "DirectShowSource: RenderFile, the filter graph manager won't talk to me"
in order for directshow to work you need to have splitters/filters installed correctly. If you render the ac3 audio in graphstudio it will tell you what directshow filters are being used. If there is no connection , you have a directshow problem
eac3to doesn't convert to aac either though, afaik, it's not in the dropdown list in eac3to&moreGUI. I would like a way to go from multichannel ac3 or dts, straight to aac. actually popcorn does that quite well, i just think having to add the video with it is annoying when it doesn't do anything with it, it's slow too, I would imagine from having video on there.
i'm not familiar with those apps, i will check them out. did try doing them in a container though, same result. i also just did a complete reinstall of system, so everything is fresh, and should be in order, i have most recent ffdshow and haali installed. i didn't think i needed ac3filter with ffdshow? or if you installed it, you disable it in direct show. also not doing dts either though, which is enabled in direct show, it instantly errors when I start process.
edit: oh yeah, i should prob mention, i have direct show set to passthrough ac3 and dts, for hdmi (and sometimes optical). I didn't think that had an effect on internal processing though. Is this what's jamming me up?
pps: if it's processing fine through popcorn, doesn't that mean file is fine?
