[linux-audio-user] multimux and generating 5.1 AC3

I'm looking at this tutorial:


When muxing all the 5.1 channels together, the author recommends to add
a 15ms delay for the rear channels. Is that correct? I thought it's the
amplifier's job to do that.
My home theater system adds a 10...12...15ms delay anyway (adjustable).
I believe, if i add another 15ms in the AC3 file, it will be too much.
What do you think?

Also, the tutorial is based on the multimux utility:


Is there any other command-line tool that performs the same functions
like multimux, or is it pretty much unique?
