    I just downloaded a large 22GB movie file which consisted of a BDMV folder with files including m2ts. I wanted to know if these files will play on wdtv without having to convert anything?

    I tried it and it played fine but there was no sound. Should I run the file into some kind of program to convert the audio?

    what components do you have and how are they connected? if you're WDTV is connected directly to a TV only and it has a DTS sound track you will have to convert it to something else.
    If you have it hooked up to a receiver via an optical cable it should have audio too.

    I dont have it connected via an optical cable so my wdtv doesn't play DTS audio. I just have it connected straight with hdmi to the tv. I normally use AudioConverter for .MKV files to convert DTS to AC3 so it can be playable for me. But this one is a large .m2ts file and I'm not sure I can use AudioConverter for it. Should I use something like TSMuxer for it, will that work?

    I'm not sure, audio / video converting is something I haven't done for years..

    this site used to have all the info and most files you need for all that though

    Thanks alot I figured out how to fix the issue: demux the m2ts file,using tsmuxer,then convert audio dts to ac3 using eac3to.
    Then multiplex using tsmuxer again into m2ts
