Software update: AC3Filter 1.62b

A new beta release of the AC3filter was released on Sunday. This Directshow filter makes it possible to decode and edit sound from movie files in real time. The software is mainly intended to be able to play files with surround sound, such as ac3 and dts tracks. Also, the codec is able to reproduce the sound from the digital output (s/pdif) to process. Since version 1.60b, the filter is available in three different performances downloadable, namely full, lite and win9x, the former also containing a 64-bit version of the filter. Below are the changes made in this release:

Release notes:

  • Precise PCM pass-through
