[MPlayer-users] Mplayer Option -dumpstream Disregards Language Information

Mplayer discards the language information when the dumpstream tag is set.
This means (assuming 131 is a valid sound track for the dvd), the output
file may be in another language:
> mplayer dvd://1 -aid 131 -dumpstream -dumpfile output.vob
The correct functionality would be to set the default language of the vob
file to the value set by the -aid when mplayer was run and the stream was
Steps to reproduce the problem:
1. Rip the main dvd track (the body of the movie) on a multi-language
dvd: "mplayer dvd://1 -dumpstream -dumpfile output.vob"
2. Play the output file to check the default language (this is NOT
ALWAYS English, even on an English dvd, so run the test): "mplayer
3. Rip the same track with the -aid tag set to a different language
(if the default is English, try Spanish!): "mplayer dvd://1 -aid 129
-dumpstream -dumpfile output.vob"
4. Play the output file again. You will probably notice that the -aid
did not set the language for the output file as would be expected by the
user: "mplayer output.vob"
This is important because many disks (like Dark Angel Season 1 Disk 1) play
fine (english) but when you dump the data, the language changes to something
