How to change audio track?

Sorry for asking but I just can not figure it out. Sorry for my bad english...

I am new to serviio and I already like it. The library is filling (can I find somewhere when filling of the library has finished?) and the movie list is showing on my TV, a samsung LE32C650.
I am testing with the Bolt animation film. The video is excellent, the audio is also. But it is in the english.
My kids do not understand english yet and want to hear the dutch audio track.
How can I change the audio track....
I do not get subtitles either (with are in the movie but 1 problem first :D )

I hope someone could help me with this.

I will post the media info for this movie below:

Re: How to change audio track?

so is the remuxing then the only option, i.e. with mkvtoolnix? (http://www.bunkus.org/videotools/mkvtoolnix/index.html)
I wonder if it's possible to change track IDs only, without actually getting rid of all sound tracks except one?

How about Sony Bluray players? They support this with native MKV playback, though there are other problems. I think you're getting a bit quick to pronounce a final verdict on issues on here.

only works on one file type though and they have to be native and not transcoded. so that is very limit number of file that will actualy work.

Hopefully this will be added to FFmpeg soon as then everyone can have this feature for native and transcoded files and all file types ( that support multiply audio tracks ). but for now only sony BD player have this and as patters said its only on natively streamed MKV files.

There maybe programs out there to change the audio order in video files and if you manage to find one please post a link to it here so other may benefit from it. ( free one would be best if possible )

EDIT: here one that say you can edit MKV audio tracks so maybe that will work for you http://www.emmgunn.com/mokgvm2dvd/mokgvmhome.html

Re: How to change audio track?

Found this link http://www.afterdawn.com/software/audio ... ux_gui.cfm which should do it but it is with remux
And this one without remux http://www.makemkv.com/forum2/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=2501
MKVMerge does the trick! It took about 15 minutes for me to change the order on a 13,5 Gb movie

FFmpeg has a map function that allows the choosing of different video/audio streams in the file to be extracted. Can this map function be used for all files or is it just for vob files?

Re: How to change audio track?

The map function can be used and will be used once I implement it in Serviio. Obviously that will mean all files will have to be remuxed for those who will want this functionality.

Re: How to change audio track?

I see that this is an old thread, but this is still unanswered. Is there some way i can change audio tracks?
I have a Samsung 40C630.
If i connect the external drive to the usb port i have the option to change audio tracks. If i play a movie via Serviio (0.6.1) i do not have the option to do so.

P.S. Should i make another topic regarding this question since this one is almost 1 year old?

Thanks!
