Please be aware that much of the software linked to or mentioned on this forum is niche and therefore infrequently downloaded. Lots of anti-virus scanners and so-called malware detectors like to flag infrequently downloaded software as bad until it is either downloaded enough times, or its developer actually bothers with getting each individual release allow listed by every single AV vendor. You can do many people a great favor when encountering such a "problem" example by submitting them to your AV vendor for examination. For almost everything on this forum, it is a false positive.

Multichannel DVD audio (ac3) --> downmix gets too quiet

I've been using MeGUI to encode some DVDs I have to mkv files with ogg audio.  My problem is the original audio tracks are 3_2ch 384Kbps ac3 files and when I downmix to stereo they always get noticeably more quiet than the original ac3 file.  Can someone recommend a tool that will allow me match the audio level of the original or at the very least apply some gain prior to encoding to vorbis?

Thanks for any advice!

you should check the settings which apply to ac3 Dynamic Range Control in ac3 decoder settings (if there are any, i dont use megui, so i dont know).
