View Full Version : 2-channel DVD rips

I just downloaded .avi videos of the Futurama DVDs. The volume bar in Winamp 5 controls the show volume, but the DVD commentary stays at a constant volume. WMP doesn't separate the two sound channels (different from those other sound channels) like that; the volume bar changes both equally.

Does anyone know how I can mute the commentaries but not the main sound?

Good question.

I vaguely remember reading something about support for 2 or more audio tracks to an .AVI file in the Winamp 5.04 changelog, do you have that version?

You're right. :beer:

"added multiple audio avi support (right click video window, select "Audio Tracks")"

I was using 5.03.

I thought all the cool ones were using Ogg and Matroska. :)

I've never got a Matroska file to work. The documentation is terrible.

That's a requirement for coolness. Cool people say stuff like "The code is the documentation, dude."

I learned in high school that I'm not cool.

SP As in you've never gotten an MKV file to play? What you need is a playback pack/codec which you find easily by googling it or going here: http://packs.matroska.org/

If you want to know how to actually create an MKV container after ripping your DVD - let me know. I can help you out by showing you what programs you need (ie: VirtualDubMod) and the necessary steps.

Yes, I found the Matroska packs stuff, and installed it. I couldn't figure out how to get it to work with Winamp. I've installed media players that are supposed to have built-in support for .mkv files. The best I got was the sound from one .mkv, and no video. I've tried more than one file, too.

Good timing then, 5.04 came out just a few days ago.

I assume you've tried Media Player Classic? That one does the trick for me.
