MP4 Fast profile down converts to stereo AAC

Feb 18, 2013 at 9:12 PM
Just began using MCEBuddy - so far, I'm loving it. I use it to strip out commercials from wtv recordings and create a MP4 file (for Roku playback via Plex). Everything is working great except that Plex reports the MP4 files as 2 channel audio (they are 5.1 in the source wtv file). My Roku feeds directly into AVR so I would like to have surround sound if possible (ie, so that the Roku can still direct play the files without server transcoding).

Is there a setting in the MP4 fast profile that will allow this?

I'm sure you've explored all the settings in teh Advanced SEttings section of the Conversion Task page. Confirm that Stereo Audio has been unchecked.

Thanks rboy...

The configuration page doesn't show a "Stereo Audio" checkbox.... I have Multichannel audio checked.. is that the same thing? I'm using 2.3.11.

Yes that's the same thing.

Try upgrading to the latest BETA version there have been updates to audio configuration and profiles.
