Audio Commentary On/off

Question

Ok, just upgraded from V1 to V4. I have a Video_TS folder of a French movie, that has an optional Audio Commentary special feature that you can turn On or Off on the DVD. Popcorn lists the Main Movie, and 32 Extras for optional burns. Only the Main Movie shows as the full length feature (1:38:00). There are no Extras listed that indicate audio commentary on/off.

 

So, if I burn everything, I get the entire menu with the ability to turn audio commentary on or off, but 44% compression.

 

If I just burn the Main Movie, it burns the DVD with audio commentary turned on!!

 

How can burn just the Main Movie, with audio commentary turned off (and, of course, English subtitles).

 

Thanks.....

After you click Options, choose Custom and then you'll see an "ABC" button next to each title. That is where you select a specific audio track and subtitles track.

 

Yes, thank you ... but if I select either French or English, I still get the same voiceover narration in English. Aargh! Perhaps it is just the way things are implemented on this DVD? Could that be the case?

This is an area in which I've done very little experimenting. The loss of the menu and its control of what the DVD player is directed to access probably is at the root of your problem. It may be possible to use MyDVDEdit to modify the IFO file so that the instructions are exactly what you want, but I'm not an expert on that, either. Something you could try is to have Popcorn author a new VIDEO_TS folder from the specific title(s) you want from the original. This is done by choosing DVD Video as the format in the Copy tab and inserting your DVD or placing the VIDEO_TS folder on the desktop. Choose DVD with the top button of the Media Browser. Double-click on what appears in the browser window to see the individual title. Select the title(s) you want and add them to the main window. You will get a window that gives you a lot of options for what you want to transfer. It may be possible to transfer only what you want. If the resulting content is still too big for a single-layer disc, choose Save as Disc Image and then select that disc image using the Image File setting to activate the fit-to-DVD process when burning your single-layer disc.

Thank you tsantee. Yes its strange. Even if I go into Options and do the preview play with different combinations of soundtrack and subtitles selected, the preview always plays with the english narration. I'll do some more experimenting (including MyDVDEdit) and see what I unearth. In the meantime, I went ahead and burned the full version with compression. Thanks again for your time and help.
