Most of those online services don't support 5.1 from a PC and some don't support 5.1 at all (youtube). If you see a video on youtube that claims 5.1 in the description they are lying.

Just ripped one to confirm that and it looks like i'll be remuxing anything with a dtsma track since it could potentially save a gig or so per movie.
