AC3 Filter update - 1.30b

Open source code meaning anyone can download the source code. AC3 is an audio codec developed by Dolby Inc. and if you use their codec, it must be licensed which adds to the price of an application. The open source version was developed by programmers that donated their time to backward engineer the Dobly codec.

 

As a user, doesn't really mean much other than it's free to use. If you have video files that use AC3 and you can't hear the audio, this free AC3 codec will allow you to hear it.

Gary, would that include the folks who have the Basic version of EMC 7 and EMC 7.5 that did not have AC3 capabilites, because the version didn't include the codec?

If you have one of the 'lite' or OEM versions, it is disabled (along with Xvid and so on) - why they did it that way is a mystery

 

How do I know what version I have? If I do have the lite version, how can I enable this feature?

 

Thanks!

What is it called in start all programs? Did you buy it or did it come pre-installed on the PC?

 

List the program applications by name. Go to help about in one of the applications a version # should be listed.

 

You won't enable the feature, probably have to buy a full retail version....

You might be able to find EMC 9 or 10 retail version somewhere real cheap. Just be careful with purchasing on eBay.

 

Have you tried Movie Maker that comes with Windows? You could load the video there and 'Output to my Computer' as DV AVI. That should work in EMC 9 DE.

Good idea!

 

OK, I've opened the file in Windows Movie Maker. There is sound, but no image. What gives?

 

Thanks again!
