Hi all. For a while now I have been ripping Bluray disks to my computer and then using Handbrake to create compressed versions, all of this for my main home theater room.
I have always used the highest quality audio available on the MKV file, be it DTS HD MA, Dolby True HD, etc. I have never put any secondary audio files in the MKV’s. Probably short sighted
At any rate, now I am realizing that I want to put boxes in other room of the house that won’t have home theater setups in them. Therefore no hardware to pass thru the audio to.
I am assuming that if I play an MKV that only has, say, a DTS HD MA audio track, on a system that doesn’t support DTS, that I won’t get any sound.
But I don’t want to reencode my video again on hundreds of movies I’ve already ripped and created MKV’s for.
Is there a reasonable process I can follow to add a seconday audio track to the MKV’s without having to reencode the video or the existing audio track? I know Handbrake can add additional audio tracks but can it do it without reencoding the video in the mkv container?
Thanks all. I have many many tools for manipulating media files but I’m not sure which ones can do what I need.
