Question A way to have two audio tracks within a DivX movie?

I was just wondering if there is any way to get two audio tracks encoded into as DivX movie. For example, the ability to somehow switch from the normal movie audio to the director comments?

I don't know if this is possible so that's why I am asking here.

Thank you for your info!

NanDub will allow you to install two audiotracks to your DivX-compressed .AVI...

I do understand you can add tracks with Gknot where there is Audio 1 and Audio 2, but when you play the divx file after they have both been encoded to the file, how do you select what one to play?

Well it encoded, so I guess that is a good start. The only problem is when I installed Morgan Stream Switcher, I can't find any options in Window Media player to change audio tracks. It plays fine, just still can't switch. Is there something else I have to do?


Thanks

Default Something Better Than Morgan Switcher

That's so pleasant to know I'm not the only one coding movies with director comments

IMHO, windows media player + morgan stream switcher isn't the best combination to use when 2 (or more) audio tracks in a movie.

Though many people find it easy to use BSPlayer,
I personally prefer Light Alloy
http://www.neurosoft.ru/alloy/
because it allows you NOT TO SWITCH, but actually MIX audio TRACKS, that are in the movie. So handy it is! (Especially when it comes to comments). Let me advise you to give it a try.

BTW, would anyone like to know how to create movies with MORE than 2 audio tracks?
