How do I rip the 6 channel audio from video DVDs into 6 channel FLAC? I tried to convert the AC3 into WAV then into FLAC, but it turned into 2 channels.

Why would you want to convert lossy AC-3 to FLAC? Anyway AC-3 files can be decoded fine using Foobar2000, either by downmixing on-the-fly or not.

Oh, so AC3 is not just another type of WAV? Like it's actually something like mp3?

That explains it, because I re extracted them, and found out that 95 minutes of sound is only 302 megabytes for 6 channels.

So is AC3 a compression it self? So the video DVD's audio is worse than CD audio in terms of per channel quality?

Is the 2 channel PCM also lossy or not lossy?

Thanks.
