    Hi All,

    I have a DivX file with multiple audio tracks and I'm trying to make an SVCD
    from it. I only want one of the audio tracks. How can I save just one of
    the tracks as a WAV? I've tried using VirtualDub and it doesn't seem to
    have this capability. Is there some other software package out there that
    can do this?

    VirtualDubMod has multiple audio stream support.

    Thanks for the tip about VirtualDubMod.

    However I still have some problems. I can use VirtualDubMod to extract a
    wav. But when I load it into TMPGEnc and try to use it to encode, I get a
    message saying "The error occurred when ACM was initialized."

    I CAN play that saved wav file in Windows Media and it sounds fine.

    I used GSpot to try to determine if there's anything unique about this AVI
    and it tells me that the audio format in the AVI is "ac3 (0x2000) Dolby
    Laboratories, Inc". I do have the Ac3 codec installed, but I'm wondering if
    this is the problem since most of the AVI's I've made into SVCDs have the
    audio encoded in an MPEG-1 Layer 3 stream.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks again!

    VDMod can most likely still separate the stream, then use something like
    besweet to transcode from AC3 to WAV

    Thanks a lot! I set myself up with Besweet and it looks like it'll do the
