Hey everybody, I have been trying to watch some old tv show episodes and everytime I go to watch it it says
“This file contains an audio track in an unkown format. You may need to install a DirectShow Decoder for this audio format in order to hear the soundtrack on this file."
Thats all it says, it doesnt give the slightest hint as to which code and its bugging the hell out of me! Any help would be greatly appreciated!
Try using mediainfo to find out what the audio codec is.
AC3Filter 2.1a (2012-04-10)
AC3Filter is a high quality free audio decoder and processor filter. It allows media players to playback movies with AC3 and DTS audio tracks. Also it can process any audio track; much of processing options allows adjusting the sound in almost any way. It is possible to upmix any audio source to 6 channels. Filter can do multi-channel and digital (SPDIF) output. It can encode any audio source to AC3 on-the-fly and send it over SPDIF to the receiver.
Equalizer crash fixed. Thanks to all whom report bugs.
