MKV files with dual audio/subtitles

Postby NrGx » Sun Apr 19, 2009 12:52 am

Hi, just wondering if there is a way to toggle between audio and subtitles when watching an MKV files. I use Media Player Classic to do it on Windows and am not sure if there is a Linux equivalent. As far as I know, VLC will not do it and neither will MPlayer. I am a newbie at Linux (installed it for the first time yesterday) so please go slowly for me :)

Thanks in advance,

You could try SMPlayer (mplayer frontend) which is what I use and very much prefer over the default interface of mplayer
