  1. I can't seem to find anything open source, probably not surprising. What software is out there for Linux or Windows that allows one to convert flac or various other 7.1 audio to eac3 7.1? libav seems to only do 5.1 eac3.

    You can try eac3to,it does eac3 but requires some setup for it.

    Pretty sure eac3to does not output 7.1 eac3 audio.

  4. Yeah, so, thanks for the help. Apparently, Plex has one, but Idon't see any reference anywhere (other than Plex) to eac3_eae/. Wish I could find it! They use it to transcode to eac3 7.1 via an ffmpeg external library they seem to have.

    eac3_eae is decoder, the obsolete one, since ffmpeg unlike libav have native eac3 7.1 decoder

    That's really odd then. Plex transcodes TrueHD to eac3 according to their own screen when playing a TrueHD, and, the command line running references eac3_eae, and, the plex screen says transcoding from trueHD 7.1 to eac3 7.1
