Select several audio tracks of same language

Post by bvrulez »

My setting is

Code: Select all

-sel:all,+sel:audio&(eng|favlang|nolang),-sel:(havemulti|havecore),-sel:mvcvideo,=100:all,-10:favlang,-sel:subtitle,+sel:(forced*(eng))
and I have the problem that from two german audio tracks (DTS and stereo DD) just one (DTS) is selected.

Favlang is German at the moment.

It looks like this:
[ ] Audio DTS-HD MA Surround 5.1 German
----[X] DTS Surround 5.1 German
[ ] Audio DD Stereo German

I answer my own question. With

Code: Select all

-sel:(havemulti|havecore)
I obviously deselect the multi (and the non-core of HD).

Is it possible to only select the "best" sound track only?
7.1 --> 5.1 --> etc

The pitfall to selecting "best" is that, for many movies, the movie audio is either Mono or Stereo, and the commentary audio is in 5.1 surround sound, for some reason.
