DTS-HD MA and Dolby TrueHD Software Decoders?!

I'm about to lose my mind.  All I want are some reasonably priced DTS-HD MA and Dolby TrueHD software decoders.  Does anyone know where I can find some?  As for ffmpeg, it has some ginarmous memory leak whenever I try to open a file with them.

The question is how on earth do you have files encoded in these formats to decode in the first place. AFAIK they are only used on Bluray. licensed software encoders/decoders are never going to be cheap. You'll just have to wait until a usable unlicensed FFmpeg implementation is available.

I have decrypted Blu-ray content.  No, I'm not going to put any of them on Torrent sites.  These are MINE and I paid for them.

As for the state of things, I guess a little waiting won't hurt.

That sounds very hypocritical to me. What other reason would you have for doing this besides making a backup? I am suprised the lead developer of ffmpeg hasn't created his own implementation as of yet.

Because I don't want to load a disc in everytime I want to see a movie.  I want to double-click a file, complete with chapter points and subtitles.  Why should I play with ~ 35 GB per movie when each one can be ~4 GB and easily accessible?

EDIT:  I've been wondering if the extra trouble is really worth it.  Do the supplemental streams make it sound THAT MUCH better?  The core AC3 stream is already at 640 Kbps, which AFAIK is higher than DVD audio.  They're ending up as Q5 (AOTUV) Vorbis files, so there won't be much loss there.  Has anyone even been able to distinguish the difference between the core track and the full track?  As a side note, I do care about dynamic range.

If you pay for Nero 7, Sonic, and perhaps ArcSoft, you can use their decoders with eac3to.

EDIT: If you use eac3to, its libav / ffmpeg has been patched to decode TrueHD.

eac3to also supports DTS-HD MA decoding without an additional dll file now.
