Skip AAC but convert all other audio to AAC while remuxing MKV to mp4

(Spike Mixture) #1


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
