Changing audio tracks in an Avi file?

Any help would be great with this.I am trying to change the default audio track from Spanish to English so i can then convert it to dvd and have the English only.If anyone knows of a relativly easy way of doing this that would be awesome.Thanks in advance.

Have a look at http://forum.videohelp.com/topic266194.html. Does it help?

Many encoders will allow you to select the language from the video file that you want to use.

Alternatively VirtualDubMod will allow you to disable either of the tracks. Guides to using this are again on videohelp.com.

I’ll happily give more detailed advice if you choose this option.

Thanks fxj10cn , but i had already tried that method with no success.When i try to use Avimux it saves the file in some kind of unplayable format.

thanks TimC , i will give VirtualDubMod a go and let you know if i am successful.

Problem solved.The easiest way i found to solve this was as follows.I used ConvertX to DVD when converting the avi file and it allowed me to deselect the audio that i didnt want and it worked great.Thanks for your replies.

Thanks for that, I was also having the same problem. however, even though convertX did work, I’m not too sure if I want to spend 40 bucks just to watch a movie or program in english. Is there a app that I can get for free that help me get the same result? for the time being, I’m using the trail version which is rather annoying cause it leaves a water mark every five minutes!
