    AC3 filter config with Mediacar

    I just downloaded a few AC3 decoders for my divx movies and I noticed that only one of them, AC3Filter, has a configuration tool AC3Filter.cpl. I can get this one to work just fine but it doesn't allow me to use Wave control to lower the volume. The others must be configured through your media players. Can this be done with MediaCar? I don't think so because I can't find anything to make the AC3 filters work in the program. Any thoughts?

    I found this out about AC3 filters:

    When you playback an AVI-AC3, you may want to choose whether the AC-3 sound should be decoded to 2-channels, 4-channels, 6-channels, or passed-through via your S/PDIF output (to be processed by a AC-3 receiver). However, to be able to make such a choice, your video player must give you the option of changing the properties of the DirectShow filters it is using. Windows Media Player 6 offers that option, while the version 7 doesn't. I don't know about other video players. If you can't change the options, you will still get sound, but most likely it will be converted from 5.1 to 2-channels.

    Yep, that's my problem, I can't configure it to give 6 channels. Am I SOL with Mediacar?
