#239 Update the mkv splitter to render multiple video tracks

General (199)

Matroska container can have multiple video tracks eg:
video track 1 (film)
video track 2 (trailer)
video track 3 (extra) and so on...

Smplayer works very well with multiple audio and subtitle tracks,but it can't with multiple video tracks (it renders only the first video track).Can you update the splitter in order to make possible switching from a video track to another one ?(as haali media splitter + media player classic already do)

    smplayer doesn't use "splitters" or any other DirectShow things. It just uses mplayer as backend to play things.

    But anyway, yes, video track switching is not implemented in smplayer yet, mainly because I don't have any sample video with multiple video tracks...

    Added the possibility to change the video track in svn r2068.

    (Only tested with your video)
