    Use graphedit to make sure AC3 filter is actually being used. I have not been able to have it actually work even when selected when SAF 3.40 is installed. Another way to test this is to disable the MPA filter included with SAF 3.40. This can be done with the regsvr32 command. Go to the windows\system32 or syswow folder if using x64 and type:

    regsvr32 -u

    Then make sure AC3 filter is selected in MP and give it a try. This method fixed stuttering sound for me. The only issue is you will need some kind of audio decoder for the other formats. I installed ffdshow and unchecked all of the video associations and just use it for audio. This is an interim solution but the only one that currently works for me.
