Can BBMPEG output PCM WAV audio streams instead of mpeg1 / mpeg2 audio?

  1. Is it at all possible to get the BBMPEG encoder to output PCM WAV
    audio streams instead of MPEG1/MPEG2 audio when using it to encode
    DVD-complant MPEG2 files? If so, how? It seems that BBMPEG is not
    able to do this, though I thought I'd ask anways, just in case there's
    a setting somewhere that I'm missing.

    I ask because as I understand it, using MPEG compressed audio of any
    kind for DVDs is not 100% supported in all set-top DVD players, and I
    hear that using PCM WAV audio (or AC3 encoded audio) is actually a
    much safer bet.

    PCM occupies a lot; so much, that I would rather run the risk of using
    mpeg audio -which, on the other hand, seems to play fine in most
    players, even if its not a standard for NTSC ones (it is for PAL
    ones). But in any case, the best option is to use Ac3 audio, which you
    can encode separately, then mux with the video.
