Can't get AC3 Filter working for audio type 0x2000

posted in Audio Codecs

For some reason, even though AC3 Filter is installed, AVIcodec still reports that the audio stream is unsupported. Here’s the line from AVIcodec:

Audio : 55 MB, 192 Kbps, 48000 Hz, 2 channels, 0x2000 = AC3 DVM, Unsupported

This is with the latest version of AC3 Filter too. Does anybody have any idea why this might not be working? AC3 Filter shows up in AVIcodec’s codec list. reply

Ive hade a problem with that that one to. It’s playing, but only partialy decoded.

0x2000(AC3, Dolby Laboratories, Inc) AC3

48000Hz 192 kb/s total (2 chnls)

Gspot says “Codec(s) Installed”

SPDIF passthrough for: MPA AC3 DTS
Use AC3 encoder (do not encode stereo PCM)
Check SPDIF sample rate (allow: 48kHz)
Query for SPDIF output support
i haven’t got any effect
can any body come with any solution.
thanks. reply


i Installed it but still not working :/ please help


There could be many frtocas why this problem occurred. VLC Media Player can already play different media formats without installing this codec pack. This codec pack is recommended only if you want to be able to play and view extra media formats in . reply
