Handbrake / tsMuxeR How to prelisten multiple audio tracks to know those to keep?

Handbrake / tsMuxeR

How to prelisten multiple audio tracks to know those to keep?

I'm doing most of my encoding with Handbrake but sometimes I don't know what audio tracks I should select because there is no option to listen / preview it...

It seems that the order Handbrake shown is not always the same order than if I play the movie with MPC-HC or VLC or if I check it with tsMuxeR GUI.

The result is that at the end of the encoding I may notice that it's wrong and I've to restart again and guess which one I should pick instead or encode every audio tracks (slower) then demux them... Very annoying!


Let's say a movie has 4 tracks.

If I play it with MPC-HC I'll get:

audio_track_01 Voice & Music
audio_track_02 Voice Only
audio_track_03 Alt. Voice & Music
audio_track_04 Alt. Voice Only

But when I load it with Handbrake the order might be different:

audio_track_01 Voice & Music
audio_track_02 Alt. Voice & Music
audio_track_03 Voice Only
audio_track_04 Alt. Voice Only

And with tsMuxeR GUI (or another software), the order might be different as well.

How can I avoid that, how can I be sure that I select only the 2 (or more) audio tracks I want without too many manipulations?

It would be great if they could add this feature (prelisten) for Handbrake but I know that it's a cross-platform software so new features are rarely added... :-/

Thx a lot in advance.
