Ah OK, then there are 2 problems.

I think Haali is using a standard COM interface to let the player know 
about different streams. Maybe BSPlayer supports another one (I just 
verified and it works in MPC).

Meanwhile you can switch to the other streams directly from the Splitter 
icon in the tray (next to DVobSub and FFDShow) during playback.
