Hi,

http://www.mymediadelivered.com/2008/07/how-to-convert-your-mkv-dts-audio-to-ac3-on-the-mac-for-apple-tv/ describes one way that works.
If you are well versed with the command line / *nix part of Mac OS X you can also use mkvdtstoac3. It requires some command line tools, but they are all available for Mac OS X.

ciao,
elm

It's in Greek but I think you can understand from the pictures.

Hi: a way to convert DTS to AC3 from MKV that doesn't imply converting video (nor buying tools nor running XP...) is as follows: Use ffmpeg and then Mkvtoolnix

1. FIRST use ffmpeg to extract and convert audio. You must use command line. A way to do it is:

ffmpeg -i <INPUT_video_filename> -map 0:1 -acodec ac3 -ab 320k -ac 6 <OUTPUT_audio_filename>.ac3

Some explanation:
-i refers to input file
-map refer to audio channel to convert (0:1 is the first audio channel)
-acodec refers to audio codec of the output file (ac3 is a fine one)
-ab refers to bitrate (320k is OK)
-ac refers to number of audio channels (6=5.1)

2. THEN use Mkvtoolnix: it has a graphical interface so it should be easy. Just select video file, audio file (the one you converted), set the output_filename and select 'Start muxing'

DONE.

Regards,
M.
