Ive got a hd700, and im having great difficulty in converting the movie files from aac to ac3 - to make it compatible with toast 9. [if i dont covert it, it ages for toast to re-encode for hd-dvd's!]

ive used 'aiptek-utility' in windows to convert the mp4 file, which takes seconds to convert to ac3 sound, and toast then doesnt re-encode the sound or video [which is fantastic and no loss i pic quality!]

just wondered whether anyone else had a really simple way of converting these files on a mac- ive tried qt, vlc, compressor.....and none have been successful! - help anyone??

I'd probably try the new VLC 1.0 version for starters:

If that didn't work, I'd look for GUI front ends for ffmpeg and mencoder (or just use them from command line)
