Thanks for the reply, I already tried it (just forgot to mention it) but it's just too complicated, no guides help on setting it up and after much sc***ing around I just had to give up. Besides, I don't see the option to output the file in acc/m4a/mp4 or anything that has to do with aac except to set the filepath to the encoder.
Now, this --br part confuses me still. Is it --br=64000 or --br64000 or --br 64000 or something else. No matter what I set, the encoder seems to randomly set either 128000 or 96000 bps as the bitrate...
eac3to C:\yourfile.dts stdout.wav | neroAacEnc.exe -cbr 64000 -hev2 -if - -of C:\yourfile.mp4
eac3to C:\yourfile.dts stdout.wav | neroAacEnc.exe -q 0.100 -if - -of C:\yourfile.mp4
Now, keep in mind that 64kbps for 5.1ch audio will suck. Big time.
That's exactly why I tried to get the 6chWAV first, so that I could use the Winamp's built in HE-aac encoder to do the job. It never let me down before, although I never actually tried doing 5.1 before. So now I'm actually reconsidering to throw away 5.1 and simply downmix it to stereo, or maybe 2.1 'cause that's my speaker config. I cannot change the bitrate of the audio without decreasing the video bitrate, and furthermore, using vbr will mean that there might be a lot of difference between the video files' quality since the filesize has to be exact, for the purpose of backing up to DVDs.Well, thanks for all the answers, perhaps in time I'll try again
