Windows Media Center - subtitles and audio language

I would like to know if I am able to change the audio language and turning on subtitles for a MKV file on Windows Media Center? Thanks.

I don't know about those particular aspects of MKV, but from the article below, it appears that it is going to take some configuring to get them to play at all:

Once configured, the best bet would be to simply try one and find out for yourself if those options work.

Wow thanks a lot for the response I really appreciate it, it seems that Windows 7 doesn't support MKV files yet or ever so its still a work in progress there are solutions from the link you gave me but some side affects in doing so might make you have to reload your copy of Windows 7 so, I'll just wait till there is a safe and proper way, but thanks it helped alot.

Thanks for the help but unfortunately, I needed help on the Windows Media Center, so I can stream a MKV file to my t.v. with changed audio language and subtitles that show up on WMC while watching on my t.v.

The best way i have found was MKV toolnix is the best thing i found.

Here is the link for windows 7

You just drag the file over and then uncheck the boxes that you don't want to be played on the MCE. I use this for all my movies that have subtitles in them, I am still looking for a way to turn them off and on with my remote from the couch in windows 7 MCE.
