  1. I wanted to do a fandub of lord of the rings and want it too be as good as it can be, so im trying to get the audio from the blu ray that are in 6 channels. I ripped it to mkv and removed the other languages and commentary tracks via handbrake and then extracted the audio to an mp3 file and there is only 2 tracks! Left and right and its not helfful for the difference between the two seems to only be that one has base. This is weird since the mkv file i ripped has no talking when i opened it, exept for background voices sometimes and faint voices sometimes, but keeping all music and sound effects. Probably because my earphones doesn't support 6 channel playback so some get lost. But still how do i translate that to audacity?

    With few rare exceptions, mp3 doesn't support more than 2 tracks. Exporting to that format is where you went wrong (assuming source was mutichannel).

    Try ac3/dd.

  3. Thank you will try. Must find a program that converts to that format as well.

    I used to use BeSweet and BeSweetGUI for the rare times I needed 5/6 wave files from multi channel audio.

    Add the ffmpeg import/export plugin:

  9. ffmpeg, eac3to, aften itself, BeSweet and BeSweetGUI didn't work for me. Some dont open and some dont even convert video. And one only do the first 30 minutes. Does anyone know a free program that i can open and that does not have a time limit?

    Audacity + ffmpeg import/export plugin. You'll be able to import the audio from almost any A/V file.

  12. Or use ffmpeg to convert audio to PCM then use any audio editor to edit file...

    Code:
    @set filename=%1
    @set aproc="anull"
    @ffmpeg -y -i %filename% -vn -sn -dn -af %aproc% -c:a pcm_f32le -f wav "%~n1_pcm.wav"

    Then you didn't install the ffmpeg plugin properly.

    Then how do I do it properly, because I go to the download page and it doesn't download the right file so I found the right dll file on another site and put it in plugins and added it.

    Make sure the path to ffmpeg is set to the right location:

    Edit -> Preferences -> Libraries -> FFmpeg Library -> Locate...

    It should point to the location of avformat-55.dll (and all the other files from the ffmpeg install).

    ffmpeg.exe should be in same folder as script or add PATH to ffmpeg.exe for example you can add bellow to your batch:
    Code:
    @set FF=C:\ffmpeg
    @set PATH=%FF%;%PATH%
    Assumption is that your ffmpeg.exe is in folder ffmpeg located on volume C: (you must modify this accordingly to your real ffmpeg location).

    I don't understand what you are trying to say. How do i find the script to put in the same folder as ffmpeg, what is there to modify and what about it does not make it the real location? What is a batch and how do i add things to it? I need it open so i can convert the video to audio.
