dts to aac/ac3 converter on Ubuntu


Hello,

What is the best application for converting DTS audio to AAC/AC3/DD?
There are many TVs (LG, etc) that don't support DTS.
I found other old discutions on this topic but it was complicated involving scripts, a lot of commands etc.
I want a desktop application to convert with one click (or two )
Is there something like this?

Thank you

I use ffmpeg for this.
ffmpeg -i 'inputfile' -acodec ac3 -ac 6 -ab 640k 'outputfile'

If it is in a video file:
ffmpeg -i 'inputfile' -vcodec copy -scodec copy -acodec ac3 -ac 6 -ab 640k 'outputfile'

It is a desktop application, if you run the above commandline in a terminal window ;-)

A blog introduces a direct way to transcode MKV with DTS to MKV with AC3 to solve:

HD TV like LG, Samsung smart TV and WD TV cannot play MKV files with DTS sound problem;
VLC on Windows or Mac won't play MKV DTS audio;
Any other players cannot play MKV files with DTS audio problem.

Hope it can help you!

Soundconverter/soundkonverter (gtk/kde) will do it from a GUI if you prefer that to command line.
