The article is intresting because explains why DTS seems to be
better than AC3, but it is not truly related to the encoding
capabilities of mencoder. mencoded cannot encode dts nor it can
copy the dts stream from a DVD into the mpeg container (it can only
copy it in the avi container).
In the current html documentation there are two paragraph about ac3
126.96.36.199. Software AC3 decoding
188.8.131.52. Hardware AC3 decoding
There could be two more about dts (software and hardware).
The link about the article can be in one of these new paragraph or in
Somebody knows more about dts deconding?
My knowledge is limited about that.
