That's odd. As far as I know, mplayer (and mencoder) picks the first
track it can find, and both of them should behave the same way with
respect to selecting audio. Anyway, you can force an audio track with
-aid. Most english-language DVDs have english as aid 128 or 129.
Alternatively, you can select the language with -alang en.
