Keywords: dca added

Please also provide your command line.

ffmpeg -i filename.mka

Both "Pure_Lossless_DTS-HD~stereo-sample.txt" and "Pure_Lossless_DTS-HD~stereo-sample.mka" already have been uploaded to the FTP server.

This will probably work if you disable the internal dca decoder when building (--disable-decoder=dca)

Below is the reply that I should have received from the beginning:

ffmpeg -c:a libdcadec -i "pure_lossless_DTS-HD.mka"

Also: if libdcadec is superior to the dca library, then what is the point of not removing the old-and-limited-and-outdated DTS decoder?
