Remap AC3 channels losslessly?

2 Replies, 662 Views

Just checking if anyone knows of a way to remap the channels of an AC3 file without encoding? Is it possible to do this losslessly? Or do I need to convert to wav, remap and then encode as DTS HD or 640 kbps AC3 etc? Thanks
You could try this:
https://ffmpeg.org/ffmpeg-filters.html#channelmap
If you use it with the '-c copy' flag then it shouldn't re-encode the audio. I'm not sure if this will affect the dialnorm value or not though.

Thanks. Well it's worked, but unfortunately lossless didn’t work.
