Removing part of audio from avi file

Hi there guys

I have an avi file, which is in english language but there is a second audio stream in another language in it, short of a translation, but without removing the original stream, meaning you can still listen to people talking english in the background.

Is there any way i can remove the 2nd language stream, even if i degrade a bit the original english language stream? If yes, what would i need in terms of software?

Thanx

Re: Removing part of audio from avi file

Try to open the avi with virtualdub or virtualdubmod; if there are two separate audio streams, you can disable the one you want to remove, and then save again the new file.

Remember to select "direct stream copy" both for audio and video, or the entire video will be re-encoded (very long time, unnecessary and can degrade also video quality).

If both languages are in the same audio stream, I think that is not possible to remove the second audio at all.

Yes, with virtualdubmod you can insert more than one audio stream and also more than one subtitle stream

Re: Removing part of audio from avi file

Lets assume the avi had indeed 2 streams... Where exactly would you find it in VD that the corresponding avi has 2 streams?

Re: Removing part of audio from avi file

I'm not sure that virtualdub supports dual audio. I suggest to use virtualdubmod.

In menu "Streams" select "Stream list". It will open a new window listing all streams in the avi video.

In this example there is only one audio stream (right now I don't have available an avi with a dual audio to do a screenshot )

Re: Removing part of audio from avi file

So, does it really have two audio streams or just one?

Maybe open it using nandub or virtualdubmod.

Re: Removing part of audio from avi file

Unfortunately it seems to have only one audio stream. If it had two then i would see 2 streams available and i would just have to disable one of them right? (asking for future reference)

Thanx for the help guys

Re: Removing part of audio from avi file

Yes, if the avi have two or more audio streams in that window you can see each stream.

You can disable unwanted streams or also delete it at all.

Or also add a new one (if you have it available).
