    First, thanx to all mediaportal team!, ur software is amazing.

    Im using mediaportal to play movies and series, but i have only one problem, i cant select a second audio for a movie. the movie is a mkv file with audio and video, but i have an audio file in other language and cant select these.

    Im using moving pictures.

    thanx again.

    google "mkvmerge" (free program) -> download + install
    then you can add the extra audio file into the mkv file
    it is very quick process because mkv is just a container, so you are not re-encoding the audio or the video
    then when you play the movie you can change audio track via the audio button on the remote, or via the F9/info menu to switch audio streams.

    video quality is untouched it is exactly the same. you can even remove the original audio file if you don't want it, add or remove subtitles, etc...

    using mkvmerge is pretty straight forward, i think you should be able to figure it out on your own, if not you can probably google a guide.
