    Because you said "Visual Hub", and we're interested in knowing if its possible.
    Use handbrake, and just select the audio stream(s) you are interested in.

    Well my response probably isn't the one you wanted, but I just checked a known 2 channel file (albeit both are English, but scenario is the same), and couldn't see any way of selecting a specific audio steam. The Info window shows 2 channels, but no way of selecting one or the other.

    ... since VisualHub is a dead project, I don't see a way that this will be fixed.

    Sorry... I told you this probably wasn't the answer you wanted. ;)

    Why not try Handbrake 0.9.3? I know you can select audio tracks in it. (Edit: as NJuul just said... damn, not fast enough!) :)

    HTH

    You can pick which audio channel you want, pass through the video quality so you just convert the audio.. which means converting a 4GB MKV file to M4V only takes 20 minutes tops :)
