The Evil 24 Bit/48000/LPCM Audio Stream

    I own a Music Video Disk by one of my favorite groups. I would like to
    be able to be able to edit the clips (via Video Redo/Womble) after
    ripping them via DVD Decrypter or DVD Shrink. Here is the issue
    however. The only source audio that comes with the VOB stream is "24
    Bit, 48000, LPCM" and it is the 24 bit that is the problem here.

    No matter what I do in VideoRedo or Womble Video Wizard 2005. All I
    hear is a White Noise type of static. Even if I convert the VOB over to
    MPEG2 it still does this (if the program even lets me load the file)

    What I would like to know is if there is anyway to convert the source
    mentioned above to 16bit? I have tried using every program I could
    think of from TMPGenc (latest build) and de-multiplexing then
    re-multiplexing (which will not accept the audio stream), from Wombles
    which does not even see the audio in the VOB.

    I even tried using Besweet light but it did not help.

    If anyone has an idea, or had this issue and knows a fix/workaround for
    this I would be more than humbled.

    What scares me is if more DVD's start coming out like this and there
    is no solution. From other threads I read none seems to ever have given
    an answer.

  2. If you can export it to some conventional audio format like
    WAV, then you can convert both the bit depth and sample
    rates with any audio editing tool like (free) Audacity, etc.

    If he would use the VideoLan VLC to open his video and
    use the stream tools, he would have no problem transcoding
    the audio to a 16 bit wav file. Or I should say most anyone
    would have no problem. Once he has the audio he can mux
    it with an encoder or author program.
