    After hours and days and weeks of struggling I managed to get hold of a movie in 720p and it does indeed look stunning

    However it does not sound stunning .....

    It appears to have TWO soundtracks - one over the other - one is certainly English the other sounds like German - when the character speaks a second later (possibly less) the other language repeats what they are saying

    Is there anyway that I can strip this AVI file of the 2nd language and enjoy the film ?

    Please bear in mind when giving me an answer that I am an idiot

    Windows Media Player - its played from within MCE

    Also tried it on another machine using WinXP and still its the same

    I assume there must be a way of "removing" the one track

    Depends how the audio has been encoded, it might have all be encoded into one track

    Do you have an AC3 filter?

    I had the same problem with an Imax film, and the only way to separate the audio was to use BSPlayer.

    Go into Control Panel and you should see the AC3 config. If I remember correctly you should be able to take out one of the language tracks through that.

    I think that's right, hope it works.

    I have installed the codec again and cant find an option there to chnage anything - although the german(?) language is much quieter - its as if its whispered over the english track as apposed to be same volume

    Try VideoLan Client or MediaPlayer Classic. VLC is supposed to have a built in filter for multi audio avi's. Don't know if filter works with multi AC-3 in 1 AVI. I know a couple of years back when trying to use multi mp3 AVI's in WindowsMediaPlayer I had to use morgan stream switcher to switch between soundtracks. Don't know how good it is nowadays.
