To decode an AC-3 you can use Foobar2000 with the proper plugin. If you need six mono files, you can use WaveWizard to split the interleaved file Foobar outputs.
Too much of everything is bundled in this package making it unnecessarily huge. For every component there is a free uncommercial alternative: XviD, AviSynth, DGMpgDec, ffdshow.
There is no point in downloading and running this installer. Don't stick to "toolbars" and trial limitations.
What's the point of these packs apart from seemingly legal distribution of pirated filters? A part of ACE's contents might be usefult but you don't need to install a hundred of filters at once. If you want to obtain, for example, Elecard MPEG-2 Decoder (payware), join a Direct Connect hub where someone will be sharing his k-lite mega pack installation, but DO NOT use this or any other package.
ACE Megapack uses afwuly complex InstalShield installer which has a good chance not to run at all due to some file missing. InstallShield also cannot be easily unpacked.
Free-Codecs has many separate codecs available. If you still need others which cannot be posted freely on the Web, download another pack that uses Inno or older NSIS installer, unpack it and get the filter you need. But DO NOT install ANY codec pack.
Excelent decoder. The ultimate package of free open-source a/v processing and decoding libraries for Windows.
I wonder what is the data ration between audio and DRM in this format. You better not look for a program for ATRAC, switch to another format and hardware instead. Sony can't be let close to information processing and storage.
Isn't this the free widespread "decode only" ACM codec? I believe it has no use.
