a couple of quick questions for you, i'm trying to convert some uk recordings with 2 audio streams

1 - is Haali Splitter source filter the same as the mkv splitter?

2 - What do i have to put in the box for the as option (i'm using the gui) is it a number (stream 1 or 2) or something like 0x1?

Thanks for any help and its a great program

Spooky timing seeing a dupe post yesterday. Same question really...

Thanks for a superb tool and choosing the audio stream will hopefully help us convert recordings which currently default to a silent audio track. e.g. DVB-T wtv files in the UK on some channels and the audio descriptive track.

I've tried -as1 and -as2 but couldn't get still get a silent dvr-ms output. What sort of format is expected and also, is there a recommended tool to examine wtv and see what the audio streams are numbered?

Thanks again!

The Haali splitters can be downloaded here -

The easiest way to see the tracks is to use GraphStudio, add the Haali Splitter (or simple splitter) then right click on the audio pin to see the streams.

Specify -as # (1,2,3 etc) to select the stream.

thanks, i think i've  got the hang of graphstudio now but i cant get the haali splitters to open a wtv file. ive been messing around with a mkv file for practice and it all works on that but i get "cannot load specifed file" error on dvr-ms and wtv files

Thanks for helping

WTV can only be opened by SBEv2 filters.  I don't have a multi-audio stream wtv file to work with, so I don't know how that works.

I can easily sort you one out if you like, a lot of dvb-t stuff in the uk is broadcast with the normal audio track and a visually impared mono track as well

Its a 5 min clip of with dual audio, whenever i convert it with to dvrms it selects the mono visually impared track.

Thanks for taking a look
