Thanks. Still didn't help even the slightest though. MatroskaSplitter 
seems unable to override the language setting regardless of which 
application I use.

It is not possible it seems. WMP10 has a default language setting but 
seeing as it doesn't use iso-639-2 codes, it wont work (at least, it 
doesn't work). WMP10 seems doomed to always select the wrong language. 
But so is WMP6.4 and BSPlayer also has trouble it seems.

If there is no solution to make WMP10 and MatroskaSplitter work 
together, well, then I may just as well use OggDS again. At 
least it always chose the first language which happens to be the one I 
need as default. Or use VLC media player that also selects the first 
track as default.

I just thought that the language setting in MatroskaSplitter would have 
some effect on this situation. What is it then for if not for this?

Also, MatroskaSplitter causes WMP10 to crash... all in all, OggDS is 
probably still a better choice for ogm files, even though it can crash 
explorer (although not nearly as often then wmp10 is crashed by 
MatroskaSplitter) :-/
