[linux-audio-user] 5.1 encoding...

my idea would be the following:
as far as i know audio-dvd is the same thing in general as a video dvd, but 
instead of, or possibly also besides, the video_ts dir on a video dvd, audio 
data has to be put in similar naming maner into audio_ts (or something like 
that). those directories have to be isod with a videodvd flag, or simply 
using k3bs functions for that. k3b show a window to pop files in, usually a 
bunch of mpg videos, but you could try that with mpg audio. id try to encode 
the waves (why not also first put all channels into one wave with a tool like 
snd) into some mpg1 multichannel audio. 
thats just a ruff guess how to do this, but maybe it helps.
