I've having the toughest time figuring out how to extract the FLAC audio from an MKV and then convert it to AC3 so I can remux to a VOB or m2ts to play via USB HDD on my Playstation 3.

I tried the MKVExtract in MKVToolnix. MKCEXtractGUI won't demux FLAC. So I tried command line like this:

mkvextract --no-ogg source.mkv 1:video.264 2:audio.flac

It is interesting even though I used --no-ogg options the status message still says it is writting to ogg container. Does the no-ogg option not work so this is causing the problem?

Then I tried EAC2ToGUI and I get "the format of the source file cannot be detected" I get a similar error if I try to play the .FLAC file in VLC but after it displays
the error, it plays fine anyway.

I've found XMedia Recode to be the best tool for this kind of thing.

Music washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life.
