    Know of any AC3 codec for Quicktime out there? Mind you it has to be Universal Binary.

    Thanks

    This one works great:
    http://trac.cod3r.com/a52codec/

    I tried another and that didn't like Intel Macs at all, despite being a UB and open source. So I went searching and found this one, one word of caution though, I haven't tried it with QT 7.1.3. Sometimes QT updates would cause issues with previous AC3 codecs, I'll be updating my QT in the next day or so though, so I'll post back on what it does.

    Thanks, but the download wont start.

    I get the following message:
    "Not Found; The requested URL /download/get.php was not found on this server."

    Do you have the same problem?

    Yup, looks like the file is no longer there.
    Remember, this is an ac3 to stereo codec.

    Blast. I'm glad I stuck the file in a "Downloads to Keep folder". If either of you guys would like a copy, just PM me and I'll email it (76K .zip file).

    Ah that seems to explain why it disappeared...

    It was just updated to version 1.7.1:

    The download link on the site works again too. Only fix noted is that it fixes mono playback.

    A52 Codec works for playing ac3 encoded avi files with QT 7.1.3

    Well I had a helluva time getting avi files with ac3 encoding to play in QT. The a52 codec does work! It is up to version 1.7.2 and is available here:

    Thanks to everyone who responded.

    p.s. I'll keep my fingers crossed that I can now convert to a VCD in Toast or Videohub for watching on my TV.
