WMV and 5.1 sound

If I encode a WMV video with a 5.1 audio track can a regular receiver play it back in 5.1?

Or is it possible to encode a WMV with a AC3 track?


Thanks

Stephane

No. (Needs to be Windows Media compatible)

No. (Incompatible and 'competitive' formats)

Thanks for the info,

So to playback 5.1 I need to use and AVI and have the sound encoded in AC3 format?

Might want to check out Microsoft's Windows Media knowledge base. Here's an article specifically on producing multi-channel audio WMV.
