I know what you are saying. You lost the DV because you used the video after processing in ffmpeg. I am saying use the video from makemkv and only the audio from ffmpeg. You use mkvtoolnix to mux them together and de-select the DTS-HD audio at the same time. You then end up with a DV MKV with AC3.Larrikin wrote: ↑Tue Oct 13, 2020 1:17 amThat's for taking the time to reply. Unfortunately that's overly complicated for me to do. I did have a look into it though.
Also, when playing with ffmpeg with the originally ripped MKV fro MakeMKV, I lose Dolby Vision. It must be something the way ffmpeg works. I did some testing when I converted the audio with ffmpeg but didn't touch the video. It still killed Dolby Vision.
I truly was hoping that MakeMKV could do it in one shot. Rip the disc and convert the audio simultaneously. I have Casino Royale as a great example. It's in Dolby Vision with DTS-HD. I need the DTS-HD converted to AC3 5.1
- Create MKV using MakeMKV.
- Use ffmpeg to convert the audio only. Here is a simple command for you.. (ffmpeg.exe -i "your/newly/created/mkv/file.mkv" -vn -sn -c:a ac3 -b:a 640k -map 0:1 "output/your/encoded/audio.ac3") Now the audio wil be converted and you should have an audio.ac3 file.
- Now open mkvtoolnix, add the mkv you created with MakeMKV, deselect the DTS-HD audio track, add the audio.ac3 file and mux to a new mkv file. This file should retain the DV (as you are using the MakeMKV generated mkv file) and now have only an ac3 audio track.
