Converting MKV DTS to AC3 can be troublesome. You extract the audio from MKV with an app, convert DTS to AC3 with another app, and add the new AC3 audio to the MKV files with a third one. Actually, Pavtube MKV Converter is all what you need for easy and fast conversion of MKV files. You can convert MKV DTS to AC3 or AAC audio; merge multiple MKV video clips into one file, cut off unwanted black edges; and convert MKV to versatile video formats for playback on portable players.

Easiest way to convert AAC 5.1 to AC3 5.1

Surfing online, often see people asking questions like this: "Does anyone know how to convert 5.1 AAC to AC3? If so, what software do I need and encoding/conversion settings. Thanks in advance for any help." As a matter of fact, this is a normal question, because some of our usually used multimedia devices can decode or read audio codec selectively only, we have to do format conversion to meet their requirements. For example, some theatre amplifier can only decode AC3 5.1 format, while Apple TV can only deal with AAC audio, or whatever. In this post, I’d like to document a easiest way to convert AAC 5.1 to AC3 5.1, in the near future, if I have enough spare time, I’d like to talk more about how to convert AC3 to AAC, that may be in my another post.
To convert AAC 5.1 to AC3 5.1, you just need Pavtube Video Converter only. This program is capable of reading a wide range of video and audio formats, including videos from DVs or camcorders (JVC, Panasonic, Cannon, Sony, etc.), TiVo (*.tivo), DVDs (*.vob), Blu-ray (*.m2ts,), YouTube (*.flv, *.f4v), and many other videos in common media formats, like mp4, avi, mkv, ts, tp, evo, aac,dts and so on. The detailed process is as below:

Step 1: Click "Add" button to load your video files
Step 2: Select output format and specify save path
Click the pull down menu of "Format" to select your needed format, here I choose "MKV HD Video (*.mkv) for instance. Click the folder icon at the end of "Output" to decide where to locate the output files.
Step 3: Click "Settings" icon to specify AC3 5.1.
Once click "Settings" button, a "Profile" window will pop up as above. Now you should select ac3 as audio codec, and select 5.1 as audio channel. By the way, you’d better adjust audio bit rate at 448K to match the effect of 5.1 channels to full extent. All needed settings are completely showing in the above interface, you just need follow them, and this will lead you to get an AC3 5.1 surround sound successfully.
Step 4: Click "Convert" button to start conversion
As long as conversion is finished, you can click "Open" button to find out the output files with the converted AC3 5.1 channels.
Well, hope this helps.

Hi, my Iomega ScreenPlay play MKV files but there is no sound when i connect to HDMI cable.

This mediaplayer can't read DTS sound, only AC3.What I do is that I use AudioConverter to change the .mkv files to AC3 sound before playind them. This should solve your problem.

Look on this page in the left upper corner, you will see :

Bose 321 is unable to read 6Channel AC3 Audio. Any way it can read the same?

This is true. The 321GSX will decode Dolby Digital 5.1, DTS 5.1 or PCM 2.0 digital signals from external sources (like most receivers) but will not decode any 6.1 content. AC3, mp3, mp4, wav, aiff all should work from a properly formated CD or DVD (must be -R or -RW format, or commercial), but not multi-channel AC3 content.

Canon HS10 camcorder and Imagemixer 3

To play the audio you need to download the AC3 filter pack here: I have no idea why Canon didn't bundle this codac with all of the software they provide, but it worked for me. I use a Canon FS100, and had no sound in WMP (or any other Windows apps except VLC Media Player) until installing this.

My PS3 wont start up. when i turn it on i get noting no sound or image .

Check your HDMI (looks like USB connetion) Connection or your Composite video connection (yellow, red, white connections.) Make sure they are correct and tight on both your TV and PS3.
Most common connection to use 1st is the Composite video connetions. Yellow is your Video display; Red and White are your Sound!

Good Luck.
