Title: Proper ripping Blu-ray DTSHD
Post by: Anakunda on 17 May, 2017, 09:57:34 AM
HI

Hiow do I properly rip audio BluRay if the track is in DTS HD format?
Is output format FLAC in eac3to OK to no transcode?

There's more than one kind of DTS-HD. Which one are you trying to rip? How many channels? What sample rate?

It's master audio with lossless and lossy part. If I use eac3to to extract the track, have I sure that the conversion is made from the lossless part and not the DTS core?
I need to split the track later by chapters so another conversion is needed. And yeah it's multichannel 5.0.

You can use MakeMKV to convert the DTS-HD to flac while ripping the disc, then drop the MKV in to Foobar2000 and convert to another format or split in to separate FLAC's if need be.

Saves the extra eac3to step.

The latest version of eac3to includes a DTS-HD MA decoder, and it will decode the lossless portion if you tell it to.

I'm not aware of any issues with it, but the developer recommends using ffmpeg instead (https://github.com/foo86/dcadec/blob/master/README.md).

Since I won't be compiling the whole bloody codebase of FFmpeg into a single codec support library just for the DTS component, you can just consider the foo_input_dts forever in a state of deprecation, until Peter enables DTS-HD support in the built-in FFmpeg library and adds support for all the containers, and writes his own DTS-in-WAV solution.

Or you can install VGMStream, rename your file, and accept that it's being downmixed to 16 bits per sample before it ever reaches foobar2000. That's the only component I'll be linking my own copy of FFmpeg into.

No,, but if I'm right the DVD audio extractor only decodes DVD structures(?)

You're right, this is possible to get the Bluray track splitted into tracks and playable in foobra, but in case I need to stick with DTS as target format, I'm afraid foobar2000 can't convert to DTS.
Is there another transcoding chain with DTS at the end?

then rip the core DTS not the lossless DTS-MA with MakeMKV and then load in to MKVtoolNIX and split by chapter and then use mkvcleaver to extract the chopped up DTS files.
