Yes you can fix. Just install AC3Filter and all should work fine.

HI adicoto!

I already did that. I visited free-codecs.com, downloaded it the latest version of AC3Filter and installed it inmediatly; but that codecs only works if I have installed PowerDVD Deluxe. When I delete PowerDVD Deluxe, even if AC3Filter is installed, BSPlayer doesn't work with DVD files (the audio). I would like to use only BSPlayer as my unique player of video, no two (BSPlayer and PowerDVD Deluxe).

Can you or anybody else help me again????????

Good Luck!!!!!!

To play DVD files you need an MPEG2 decoder and a DVD source filter. And of course, an AC3 and a DTS filter for the audio part. (like dtsac3source and/or AC3Filter)
When you play the DVD without having PowerDVD, wich filters (source and splitter) are used ?

To answer adicoto's question, with the DVD video loaded, right click on BSplayer control window, then go to Options -> Filters -> Advanced
There you'll find all the items he asked you ;)

Perhaps also check your settings under
(rightclick >) Options > Preferences> Audio
"For AC3 decoding use" ....
(Output device)

DTSAC3Source is only needed to read & packetize *.ac3 and *.dts files. It's not used during DVD (DVD Source) or MPEG-2 PS (Elecard MPEG-2 Demultiplexer) playback.

I have some DVD (Video Disk) with DTS that cannot be played by my combination of Elecard/AC3Filter decoders, but play OK when dtsac3source is installed.

Take a look also to the option BSPeter suggested you to take a look at..
Plus, make sure to select the right output channels in AC3Filter options (with the video opened, right-click -> Options -> Filters -> Advanced -> AC3Filter)
If you have a 2 speakers stereo system, and you choose dolby 5.1 output, you will not be able to hear the sound correctly (if not at all)

If the sound were not demultiplexed corectly, the splitter should be changed. Putting a filter (dtsac3source) where it does not belong to remedy a given single problem will only produce problems in the future.

In this case I would look what data does AC3Filter receive, if its sound level meters move reasonably in sync with the signal, what is the selected output format (bitdepth, num of channels - as Tizio said) is spdif passthrough is active. The defaults used to be very conservative last time I checked: Stereo, 16-bits, but that might have changed. Next I would check what does the Sound Renderer show (the bitdepth, channels, and ACM format will be reflected there).
