I am filing a bug for: AC3 encode volume is low
The page, http://ffmpeg.sourceforge.net/bugreports.php suggest emailing
this mail list the bug, and doesn't give reference to the bug reporting
system at sourceforge, but I will submit it here and there, (Note I am
not on the mailing list).
If I have a wav file, and use ffmpeg to encode it to an ac3 file, then
decode it to a wav file, the amplitude is greatly reduced.
I consider the problem in ac3enc... Here are a list of web sites that
discuss the issue:
- I tried the -vol option, and I don't think it did anything (except
possibly clip at a less than full dynamic range amplitude)
- a person complains, i.e. "I would like to adjust the output AC-3
volume, it is too low."
- "yes ffmpeg lowers the volume"
- DSPguru at this place seems to think it is a problem with ac3enc, and
he can see the issue, but doesn't have time to fix.
