System Requirements
Revision History

This plug-in makes it possible to decode and encode in Dolby® Digital (AC-3) 2 channel audio with products that do not support such a feature by default.

Our current software products have this feature by default, but users who are still using our older products can purchase this plug-in to add Dolby® Digital 2ch support.

The plug-in is for use ONLY with the following products:

  • TMPGEnc DVD Author 1.5 or 1.6
  • TMPGEnc 3.0 XPress
  • TMPGEnc MPEG Editor

All newer products do not require the plug-in for Dolby Digital decoding and encoding.

  • OS: Windows Vista, XP or 2000 required.
  • If you already own this plug-in for one product, you can also use it with other products that support it. You may need to update your plug-in if you are having trouble with this.
  • Dolby Digital with 5.1 channels or other multi-channel sources will be encoded into 2 channels.
