Install Script for MKV DTS to AC3

So, this is a script that will automate the installation required for converting mkv dts to ac3 for use on the tv.

original article with full installation and use instructions:

The only problem that might arise is the script not knowing where the progress bar is. It is in /Applications/BP Progress Bar.app it is downloaded for installation, and removed after.


when finished, you can run

$>mkvdts2ac3 path/to/file.mkv

or

$>mkvdts2ac3 -n path/to/file.mkv to remove the original dts track.


enjoy!
