    What's the command line for extracting the embedded AC3 640 kb/s from the original TrueHD audio file?
    I'm familiar with extracting the Core from DTS-HD MA but not TrueHD audio.

    example
    Code:
    eac3to input.dts output.dts -core
    Thanks in advance

  2. It's basically the same:
    Code:
    eac3to input.thd+ac3 output.ac3 -core
    Note that while DTS-HD MA always has a DTS core this is not true for TrueHD unless you are working with the un-altered BluRay. eac3to can be used to encode from TrueHD to AC3 with the bitrate of your choice, though.

    It's already embedded, so no encoding. Just extraction.
    Source is untouched.

    How do you extract the AC3 embedded file using eac3to command line?

    Code:
    eac3to input.thd+ac3 output.ac3 -core
    or
    Code:
    eac3to input.thd output.ac3 -core

  7. "input.thd+ac3" is just a placeholder for the filename of your file. eac3to should auto-detect the input no matter the filename. It can also directly work on m2ts and mkv containers.

    another forum said you don't need -core

    Code:
    eac3to input.thd+ac3 output.ac3

  10. Hmm, it seems that other forum is correct. But it doesn't hurt either way so my command example still works as expected. If in doubt you can always read the eac3to log. It will tell you exactly what it is doing.
