    I have a VCD with two languages. When I watch the VCD, I will need to silent either the right of left channel on my PC in order to watch the movie in the language that I want.

    When I used the de-multiplex function to extract the audio file in MP3, the file contains audio with only one language. Unfortunately it is not the language that I want. Anyone can suggest how I can extract the audio using TMPEng software to extract the right language that I want in the mp3 file using the de-multiplex function?

    Thanks.

    I don't have much experience with VCD, but I thought the audio was mp2 not mp3.
    When you play the VCD on a standalone player you switch left and right channels with the 'Audio' button on the remote to get either language?
    When you demux the audio using TmpGenc, the information is still there and if played back with the likes of VLC, you should be able to select either channel.
    If that's ok, you open the demuxed audio using an audio editor (Audacity) and remove the channel you don't want.

    Hello Attar,

    Many thanks for the reply. Yes you are right, it is mp2 and not mp3. I have a VCD that has 2 languages - English and Mandarin. The problem is after I demux using TmpGEnc, the mp2 only has Mandarin. For other VCDs, after I demux, I still have two channels in the mp2 file. In this case, using Audacity would help to remove the channel I don't want.

    But the problem is I wanted the English language. Is there anyway for me to choose the language (channel) I want at the time I demux using TmpGenc?

    Thanks for your help.

    Frankie

    Have you verified that the source video (the .dat file) has a single audio stream using the likes of MediaInfo or GSpot.
    If there is a single stream, load/drag the .dat file into VirtualDub and 'File' > 'Save Wav' and see what you get.
