Hi Carl, related to the same issue is this here:


Same as my requirement, in that channels 7+8 are separate mono's, instead of a stereo. In this case ffmpeg is not able to flag the mono channel 7 and mono channel 8 as DL and DR respectively. So when delivering to the VOD platforms, if you are delivering 8 mono's then this would also become an issue. Currently ffmpeg can flag 7+8 as DL+DR if 7+8 is a stereo, but not if they are mono's. Thought it was worth mentioning here, just in case.

Kind regards.
