Hi, I've just tried muxing an EAC3 track into an MKV using mvktoolsnix
2.4.1. It muxed it ok, but mplayer rejects it with an unknown codec
"A_EAC3". The support for this codec was added to mkvtoolsnix on
The attached patch adds support for new "EAC3" stream type in the mkv
container. Note: I originally tried simply setting it to the mplayer
standard AC3 a_formattag 0x2000, but this does not work, so I have
used the EAC3 fourcc instead.
Unfortunately the channel ordering is /definitely/ screwed (all
dialogue is coming from the rear left + front right speakers); I'll
investigate this issue later by comparing with a player under windows.
