Trouble with audio sample rates and SX Servers

One of the things I’ve been hearing from our support guys at Tightrope Media Systems is a lot of people have legacy content that is 44.1kHz audio that they would like to play back on their SX Server. The server, however, requires the standard DVD sample rate of 48kHz. This leaves everyone sad.

To help, I built a simple little utility that uses ffmpeg to fix the audio inside an mpeg2 file to be compatible with an SX Server. It’s a little Windows app that you can run, drag a batch of files and folders onto and it will do its best to process the files to make them work on the SX.
