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.

"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.

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.
