    How to set the default streams in Nero Recode 2

    Introduction:

    Change the streams:

    In this example I have merged two titles in Nero Recode 2 and only have one soundstream and one subpicture. In this example I want the sound to be selected as default and the subpicture to be hidden. If I want to see the subpictures when I watch the movie, I have to use the remote control and select it there.

    IfoEdit:

    For this purpose we are going to use the freeware tool IfoEdit.



    Install the program IfoEdit. See screenshot of the program below:



    In this example there is only one VTS_01_0.IFO. If you have several titles - you need to apply the fix on every VTS_01_X.IFO in your project.

    • Start IfoEdit.

    • Press the button 'Open'.



    • Select the file 'VTS_01_0.IFO.



    • Double-click on the 'VTS-PGCITI' (Video Title Set program Chain Information Table).

    • This will show you one or several different VTS_PGC_X's. In this example there is two. So you need to apply the changes in both of those. We will start with the first one.



    • Click on the VTS_PCG_1

    • In the lower window of the program - scroll down until you see this section - 'PGC Command Tables'.

      Your screen should look like this:



      This is also how it looks if you have selected these settings in DVD Shrink - see picture below:



    • Right-click on the row '1. Post Command'.



      You will now see this menu:



    • Select the option 'Add PreCommand'.

    • Do this twice so you end up with two new 'Pre Command' rows.

      You should now have two new 'Pre Command' rows as in the picture below.



    • Rigth-click on the first new 'Pre Command' row you have created.

      You will now see this menu:



    • Select the option 'Edit Command'. This will bring you to this menu:



      Select the '(SetSTN) Set Audio Stream Nr' and set the 'Stream' to '0'.



    • Now select the second new row you previously created and right-click on that row. This will bring you to this menu:



      Scroll down and select the '(SetSTN) Set Subpicture Stream Nr' and set the 'Stream' to '0' and 'On/Off:' to what you desire.

      If you want the subpictures to show automatic when you play the movie - use 'On' and if you want them to be off as default - select 'Off'.



      Now it should look like this:



    • If you have more than one VTS_PGC in your VTS_0X.0.IFO file - in this example there is two (VTS_PGC_1 and VTS_PGC_2) - then you need to apply the same changes to VTS_PGC_2 as you did with VTS_PGC_1. You also need to do the same if you have more than one VTS_01_X.IFO file.

    • When you have done all the changes - press the button 'Save'.

    • Exit the program and burn your project.

    • The first time you try this solution - use a RW disc - if something went wrong - you don't need to waste any disc's.
    How to identify "forced" subpictures:

    This is how you identify and set subpictures (subtitles) to be displayed automatically.

    Right-clicking the main window of your software player, while playing the movie, should give you access to a menu showing the subpicture stream being played by default.



    In the first example (WinDVD) the stream to "force" in Nero Recode 2 would be: "3. English".



    In the second example (Nero Showtime) the stream to "force" in Nero Recode 2 would be: "8. English".

    Default

    A little update on this subjet.

    If you are using Nero 7.8.5.0 or above - there is now the same function in Nero Recode 2 as in DVD Shrink. Just hit the "Default Streams" button in the compilation window and you will see this window.
