HDLink and AC3 decoding

Is there a way to direct HDLink to use a different AC3 decoder than the one it defaults to?

HDLink is decoding audio on my AVCHD files OK, but not from MP4 clips from my Samsung HMX-100. The Samsung AC3 decoder is on my system, and Window Mediaplayer plays the HNX-100 clips without a problem, but HDLink doesnt seem to be using it.

(I tried installing the AC3 decoder linked to on the Cineform site but that hasn't worked)

try manually registering the mcdaac.ax file. go to program files\cineform\prospecthd (if you have prospect hd) and then double click on the mcdaac.ax file. If promted with a 'how to open this file' dialog, select c:\windows\system32\regsvr32.exe.

then try converting again. if it doesn't work open a support ticket and we'll troubleshoot from there:

Support Center

also, we have new builds coming shortly that should eliminate the need to register this component.

Thanks Jake. Registered the decoder successfully but it hasn't helped ... I'm reconfiguring things on my systems presently so may hold off filing a ticket until the machines are stable again.

Hi Graham,

Please check the latest betas (posted 9/11/2009 Weekend Betas) as they have improved audio decoding for conversion and solved some previous problems.
