Have a Google TV? Love watching mkv files with it’s media player, but frustrated it can’t play files with DTS audio?
ffmpeg to the rescue:
ffmpeg -i "dts.mkv" -y -vcodec copy -copyts -acodec ac3 -ab 192k \
-vbsf h264_mp4toannexb -sn -f matroska "ac3.mkv"

Thanks you so much for posting this. I may have finally found the answer to my GTV frustrations. Do you know if there is a way to check if the mkv file contains dts audio? I want to write a script that will convert all my files with a single go. Also is there a way to grab just a specific audio track, or will this convert all audio tracks to ac3?
Thanks for this. Simple solution to my GTV frustrations
ffprobe -i file.mts will tell you what tracks are in the file
I use iDealshare VideoGo to convert mkv DTS to AC3
I recommend Avdshare Video Converter whch can free download MKV DTS to MKV AC3.
