Hi! I’m using Infuse on Apple TV and I have it connected to my Plex server. As we all know, Apple TV is limited when it comes to playing Atmos content, and it only works for E-AC3. At the same time, I’ve been using Plex prior on Nvidia Shield, and Plex doesn’t transfer the Atmos information when it plays E-AC3 content, but it does support TrueHD. Strange world, I suppose.
In the end, I’ve opted for the Apple TV + Infuse route, as most of my content is E-AC3, but I would still like to take care of the TrueHD content.
I’m not extremely knowledgeable about video conversion and transcoding, but would it be possible to install some sort of a server-level converter that could convert the TrueHD audio in a video file to E-AC3? Maybe it could be set it up in such a way that it automatically converts TrueHD content upon detecting that it has been added to the server.
I’m also guessing that I would have to pay some kind of a license to Dolby in order to be allowed to do that, so if it is possible and not ridiculously expensive, I would be open to it.
Any ideas in that regard are welcome!
