    Is it one language from the left and one from the right?

    There are probably many ways to fix it.
    I do the following if it's an AVI or an MPEG that I will save as an AVI.
    Using 'VirtualDubMod', import the avi/mpeg.
    Save the audio as WAV.
    Bring the WAV into 'Audacity', split the stereo into right/left.
    Delete the offending channel and export the modified audio as a new WAV.
    Back into VDUB, disable the original audio stream and add the new audio.
    Compress the Audio to MP3, and optionally the video.
    Save as AVI.
    You should be able to keep it as MPEG from start to finish do it with TMPGENc using MPEG tools to Simple DeMux and Simple Mux, but it won't accept the modified wav, so converting to AVI is all I know how to do it so far.

    EDIT:I think that TMPGENc would be happy if the audio wav could be converted to .mp2 before re muxing, but I haven't got round to trying it.

    I think you can keep it MPEG from start to finish with TMPGenc if you change the wav (out from audacity) to .mp2 with 'ffmpeggui', then mux it in TMPGenc.

    Cheers.

    Since no one told how to insert both audios, I'll do it.

    1) With VirtualDubMod select, one at a time, an audio stream form the MPG. Convert it to WAV and then, with FFMPEG GUI, WAV into MP2 48 kHz 160 or 192 kbps.
    2) With DVD Lab import the MPG. It will ask if it must de-mulitiplex it; tell it to do it.
    3) In DVD Lab make a DVD using:
    - the M1V video produced by DVD lab;
    - the two MP2 audio sreams you made on step 1). Remember to tell it which is the name of the language it represents. Read a guide from http://www.afterdawn.com/guides/ to learn how to use it.
    The only DVDLab drawback is that it isn't free, but it allows authoring MPEG-1 movies into a DVD.

    Author a DVD and burn it......
