You may remember the perfect video converter: HandBrake which can provide the MKV and MP4 videos with high quality. How to auto-select in an MKV file in HandBrake? HandBrake does not store Audio and Subtitle tracks in presets. Instead, we store behaviour rules for automatically selecting audio and subtitle tracks each time you scan a new source or select a title. Following will tell you the way.

How to Auto-select in an MKV File With HandBrake

Step 1. In order to configure the track selection behaviour, click the “Configure Defaults” button on the Audio.

Step 2. Track Selection Behaviour

  • None
    • No audio tracks will be automatically added.
  • First matching selected Language
    • The first track that matches the each of the languages in the “Chosen Languages”, otherwise the first track will be selected.
  • All matching selected languages
    • All the tracks that match the “Chosen Languages”.

Step 3. Choose Languages

  • Move any languages you are interested in into the “Chosen Languages” list in order to have tracks selected based on the track selection behaviour.

Step 4. Auto Passthru

  • HandBrake can pass thru several different audio formats. There are separate options the audio encoder dropdown for these. When you select “Auto Passthru”, it will pass thru any of those supported types. You can limit what it will automatically passthru. For example, if you only ever want AC3 or DTS passthru, but not any of the other choices, untick the relevant checkboxes.

Step 5. Fallback Encoder

  • When you have a passthru encoder selected, if the source track format does not match this format, HandBrake will automatically re-encode the track. The fallback encoder is the default encoder it will fallback to.
