I have a similar problem with eac3to - need converting 5.1 Flac to 5.1 LPCM to output to my Samsung BD player via LAN. I installed your latest eac3to package (which seems to contain very dated ffmpeg libs), and here we go:
eac3to input.flac output.lpcm
which results in immediate error message:
FLAC, 5.1 channels, 0:40:38, 16 bits, 2502kbps, 44.1kHz
This audio conversion is not supported. <ERROR>
What I'm doing wrong, and how to approach this task? Should I convert multichannel Flac into Multichannel LPCM packed into MP4 or MKV container instead, since my player seems to support
playback of these containers via LAN, while multichannel LPCM may be restricted by DLNA Guidelines to Stereo? If yes, what the commands would look like?
If multichannel LPCM doesn't play, how I can convert 5.1 Flac to 5.1 Dolby TrueHD packed into MP4 container?
Don't you feel the need to update eac3to package with latest ffmpeg version? How I can do that?
