    Hi,

    I am using Plex to watch TV shows that I have ripped from my DVDs using Handbrake. The AppleTV preset includes two audio tracks (track 1 = stereo and track 2 = AC3 passthrough).

    I was wondering if it is possible to remove track 1 from the files and leave track 2 alone without having to re-encode lots of disks. If so, what software would I need to use?

    Thanks,

    MadDoc,

    Well, Im not an expert in this, but it sounds like the sort of job I use SoundTrack Pro for (Now part of Final Cut Studio unfortunately). That can normally do a relatively good job of handling extracted audio - but Im pretty sure that its gonna involve a lot of discs whatever you do :(

    If you have quicktime pro:

    In quicktime use cmd+j and it will show you a window with all the tracks and an option de delete them,just choose the track,delete and then save.

    If you don't have quicktime pro:

    Use an app called subler:

    Start the app the choose to make a new file,drag and drop the original file in the window,a window will pop up asking which track you want to keep,choose them,then save.
