Of course, but that doesn't really answer my question. I'm trying to get my 6
channels down to 2. So that the samplerate can get back to 192. I might not be
able to use -oac copy but I can't manage to get the sound quality I want (And,
yes, I want pristine sound. Ogg Vorbis is great but pure sound copy is better).
