GETTING VLC TO REMEMBER AUDIO/SUBTITLE SETTINGS
Anyways, I was watching Cowboy Bebop as a mkv file, and the file defaulted to the japanese audio stream. I usually watch in the japanese dub, but the english dub on Cowboy Bebop is really good.
Moving along, I got tired of manually switching the audio stream each time a new episode came on. After much Google search, I found a solution.
VLC labels each stream by number, starting with 0. So in this case the first stream is 0 and the second stream 1.
Step 6. Click the Save button. Click the Stop button if you're currently watching the film, then press Play again. Now you can watch the rest of your series or season without having to manually switching languages.
Keep in mind, this only works if all the files you choose to watch have the same corresponding streams. Also, if anyone reading this has a better way of doing this, I would like to know. This just works for me.
EDIT: I forgot to mention. After you're done watching, you should change the audio track and subtitles track values back to -1. That way it won't affect any future files you plan to watch.
