    BeSweet aint crap, its pretty much your only option. Actually what u need is AC3 Machine which also uses BeSweet as an encoder!!

    I'd certainly appreciate some insight into using BeSweet for turning MP3's to AC3 files. I've checked out Doom9's guide as well as another popular one that is turned up by search engines however, I keep getting error codes. Tells me it's done transcoding in 0.0.1 sec......something just doesn't seem right. The file ends up in the destination folder being 15 kbytes. Is there a simple way to reset all the settings within BeSweet? I would really like to be able to creat AC3 files from my current MP3 list and am willing to take whatever help I can get.

    Thanks

    Try decoding the mp3s to wav first: 16bit stereo, 48kHz (or 44.1kHz) using e.g. foobar2000's diskwriter + necessary DSPs (resampler, convert mono->stereo etc.). Maybe there's something weird/unusual about the mp3s.

    I suppose that is possible. Sorry for the long delay in reply. Personal Confuser crapped out and it's a b!tch getting everything back the way I had it. Will try your idea about mp3>wav first. Tried using BeSweet GUI and the ac3 plug-in however, doesn't seem to offer support anymore. Keep getting error codes. Besides...going to have to start from scratch for re-installing.

    Thx for your help.

    Hello all,

    I think the problem is that you are using a besweet version that is to new. Because the writer of besweet got a lot of mails because the ac3enc.dll didn´t work so he decided not to support this anymore. (check in the logfile if you get error 85) You will have to use besweet version 1.4.

    However besweet is so crap that most of the time that doesn´t work either. I just found an other program yesterday, and it kicks ass while besweet kicks everything BUT the ass... It´s called ffmpeg. Its easy to use, you can convert the sound of the divx movie directly to ac3 so you wont have to covert it to wav first :)

    you can download it here http://www.dvdrhelp.com/tools?tool=434#comments

    Good luck!

    Yeah, that's a nice program. Converts to AC3 easily.
