12.11.1977

PAL DVD
PRO SHOT
LPCM MONO AUDIO @ 768 KBPS
(Audio is decompressed from AC3)
Fully Authored
Artwork
118 mns

===============================================

This is the DVD that was shared at Queenzone by
I believe Pow-Wow.
The original audio, AC3 @ 192 I believe, was decompressed, and one channel was deleted.
What is left then is a mono wav file, @ 768
I added chapters and song selection menus using
Tsunami DVD Author Pro, using the "smart rendering" setting, which means no re-encoding.

Enjoy until a better version comes along.

My ISP is slow to dead until 2 am, after that it picks up until 6 pm the next day.

I will probably disconnect for a couple of hours to reboot after 12 hours of seeding
and resume again after that.

Screens of the menus are on page 6 of Definitive Houston thread.

The downside to converting the ac3 to wav is that at some point in the future, your lineage will be lost and this DVD will be posted somewhere else as a lossless audio version and everyone will be fooled into downloading it.
I'd have left the ac3 as it was.

I'm sure folks will be grateful for a menu though, so thanks for your work doing that.

what's the point of decompressing an ac3 file and getting it to wave/lpcm? isn't it like having an mp3 and convert it to flac ? there's absolutly no point in that...or is it?

correct me if i'm wrong, but isn't ac3 files lossy?

The definitive version you may have downloaded probably came from a version I made with decompressed
audio, but there  the wav file had its volume doubled in Goldwave which caused some distortion.

This decompressed AC3 audio was not altered, and according to SirGH is perfect.

Thanks for this. The ac3 question drove me nuts a few months back.

I was wondering the same thing. Decompressing the AC3 stream to WAV offers no advantage over the original AC3 stream - it cannot magically restore the data that was lost when it was converted to AC3 in the first place. In fact you end up with a significantly larger file so why bother? Sorry if I'm having a senior moment but I can't see the point of the conversion?
