  1. Friends,

    I have a number of .mp4 videos encoded with 5.1 (6 Channel) AAC audio. I would like to end up with an .mp4 with AC3 5.1 and 2 channel AAC encoded for Dolby Prologic II (such as the way Handbrake will do when encoding a video using AC3 passthough). I do not need to re-encode the video.

    I stress that I don't want to reencode the video, only adding the AC3 5.1 track from the current AAC 5.1 track.

    If I hit the "ATV3 Specs" alternative in Handbrake every movie takes about 1.5h to re-encode (it re-encodes everything).

    Any ideas? Tried mkvtomp4 but it can only ac3 -> aac and not backwards. That's a shame because I love that program, and it's so fast.

  2. Do you realize that many programs and media players can't handle AC3 in MP4? And you're only going to reduce the quality by reencoding to AC3?

  3. Hi!

    Thanks, and to your question: yes. However, I'm on a Apple TV 3 setup and I need that specific audiotrack configuration to get a surround 5.1 sound

    Any ideas?
