    Hi,

    We appreciate your interest in transcoding using Dolby AC3 audio using the Transcoder AddOn. As you may know, Wowza will pass through the AC3 audio stream to compatible clients, however, transcoding workflow is not available due to license constraints. I can tell you that our Product Management team are well aware of the interest, however, I have no timeline or estimate as to when this may become available.

    Hello,
    Is there any update on the support of AC3 decoding in the Wowza transcoder, or advise on how this can be achieved prior to the transcoder? We are receiving increasing numbers of live streams with AC3 audio and unable to include them within our Wowza environment.

    At this time AC3 is not still not supported in the Wowza Transcoder. Your feedback has been sent on to our product management team. Please do check back in periodically to our Software Updates page to see if the feature request has been deployed.

    Currently, Wowza supports ingest of AC-3 (Dolby) audio codec streams for passthrough. However, playback would need to be through HLS or DASH formats. An output of RTSP with AC-3 passthrough is currently not supported.
