Ever since we posted 'Downloadable Movie Collections', we've been getting a lot of mail regarding sound problems. Well here is one codec which will solve sound problems with most DVDrip movie releases out there today. AC3 Filter is DirectShow AC3 Decoder filter used to palyback AVI files with AC3 sound tracks and DVDs. Multichannel and S/PDIF support. Focused at flexible controls during playback: gains, mixer, stream information, levels and other.
- Fixed bug with some 14bit DTS streams
- SPDIF input support
- Autodetection of SPDIF stream in PCM16 data
- New SPDIF/DTS passthrough mode
- DTS conversion to 14bit to decrease the level of possible noise
