So, long story short, I’m trying to extract the audio from a live blu-ray, to listen to in Roon.
My usual workflow would be to use DVD Audio Extractor, which gives me access to the different audio streams & preserves the track breaks (although unless the metadata exists, I don’t get the track names. But I can add that later, no bother.)
Unfortunately, for some reason, in this instance, the 5.1 is extracting as a stereo. (More precisely, probably just two of the 6 tracks.)
So, plan B…
Use MakeMKV to export all the titles on the blu-ray, then identify them in VLC player (figure out which ones are the menus, bonus features, etc.) & use Amvidia’s “To FLAC Converter” to get my audio files.
A single MKV file will export to several FLACs, usually two different audio versions in 5.1 & a stereo one.
Unfortunately MakeMKV does not preserve the track breaks.
So it’s off to Audacity with a stereo version from DVDAE. Line the tracks up end to end, make the labels, export the label track. Done.
Import the single full concert 5.1 audio track, import the labels track, split the tracks at the label points & export multiple.
Well, yes, except that Audacity does not support 5.1 export using labels in Export Multiple &, when I selected the advanced option & tried to export the first track on its own, the file was too big & therefore unsupported.
So, am I doing something wrong or is it simply that Audacity has a bizarre file size limit & doesn’t handle 5.1 for multiple export.
Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
