Trouble finding AC3 DirectShow decoder (code 8192) FOR A MAC

Page 1 of 161 3 4 last »

Trying to play a certain movie in Divx and i get this message (that, looking through the forums, a lot of people get) that says “You may need an additional audio decoder to play the soundtrack of this file. This file contains a track in the Dolby AC3 Audio (code “8192”) format. You may need to install a DirectShow decoder for this audio format in order to hear the soundtrack of this file.". I am using a mac. I cannot find the download for a mac. Just windows. Kind of frustrating me. Appreciate any help and instructions anyone has to offer. reply



I had the same problem and found this solution.

Michail, try opening the mkv file with quicktime. The perian software is designed for quicktime, not divx. If you want to watch it with divx on your mac, a google search will help you. Also, this forum link may be of assistance.
