Determining MLP vs DTS in a DVD-Audio file listing by speaker arrangement?

I'm able to get a listing of the files on a DVD-audio disc (that i own) and play them back on my computer. The files are listed like so:

How can i tell which files are DTS and which are MLP? Given that they are all 24/96 i can't tell by file size or bitrate. The speaker arrangements are different however. Can one tell MLP apart from DTS by speaker arrangement on this disc and other DVD-As?

Thanks.

Of course you can tell by bit rate. MPL (=lossless) tracks have a much higher bit rate than DTS tracks. Only in your screenshot, the bit rate is not shown.
In theory, there is no difference between theory and practice. In practice there is.

The (DVD-Audio compatible) MLP should be AOB files in the AUDIO_TS folder.   The (DVD-Video compatible) DTS files should be VOB files in the VIDEO_TS folder.
