    I want to set a filter to find videos containing AC3 sound with stereo. Problem is that tehse also have for example AC3 with 5.1 or dts. When I use the menue to config this I don't get all videos containing this. So how can I do this?

    Is there no filter for audio channels? So you can add AC3 + 2 channels as filter.

    Yes - but when I set this it seems only to display the audio with the higher resolution - like in the skin itself - it only displays 5.1 even if 2.0 is also there.

    Sure - he we go:

    As you see Atr the movie it only displays the DTS Audio - even as the movie also includes AC3 in Stereo. Thefore it seem as also the Filter only can check after the dispalyed value

    That is due to the limitation of Moving-Pictures in what info it uses that MediaInfo DLL provides.

    Whatever audio codec is returned by MediaInfo first is what is used by MovPic to store in database and all other codecs are ignored.

    If memory serves me there is an existing google code issues to expand support on that, but that also largely depends on support by the MediaInfo development team.

    For right now, your best bet is to use a renamer tool that can add all audio codecs to the filename (forgot name of the one I know that does it). Then you can use the existing MovPic filter on "Full Path" to filter out the AC3 stereo files.

    Solved: In my case, it was indeed a codec issue. In LAV configuration, I had to select "DXVA (native)", then DVD playback including menus work fine. Sorry for having caused trouble, and thanks a lot for the support!

    Got into Disk Management to Change Drive Letter and Path for J: but found the "Mount in the following empty NTFS folder" & "Browse" are both grayed out. Diskpart using an Admin CMD allowed me to Select Volume and Assign it to an empty NTFS folder. You've been a great help.
