I love Buddy and saves me a huge amount of time.
One thing i would like a conversion task that ignores AAC audio but convert all other audio to AAC while remuxing mkv to mp4.
I am finding many mkv are using EAC 5.1 or EAC 3 which some of my players do not like.?
What needs to be added to a new conversion task to get that result.
I have tried this before with little success and did not pursue.
Now the EAC3 etc are annoying me I am on the case again
You will need to create a custom profile to do this. MCEBuddy can differentiate between AC3 and non AC3 input streams. See this topic for details:
Basically depending on whether you’re using Handbrake or FFMPEG you would need something like this, this keeps non AC-3 audio stream as is and converts AC3 audio into AAC
handbrake-audioac3=-E faac -R auto -B 384 -a 1,2,3,4,5
handbrake-audio=-E copy -a 1,2,3,4,5
ffmpeg-audio=-acodec copy -map 0:a
ffmpeg-audioac3=-acodec libfdk_aac -ab 384k -map 0:a
I am trying both and will report back here
