Your viewers are able to set up their audio stream or subtitles from their remote, but there are potentially several advantages to letting them do so from within your menu system. For starters, your work looks that much more slick and professional. Also, you can more fully describe what's on said alternate streams - there's no ISO code for "Director's Commentary." For that matter, if you want to use advanced features like Subtitle Buttons, you can create really cool interactive experiences that people wouldn't even think to turn on from the subtitles menu (I think Rocky Horror Picture Show did this ...).

Well, DVD Studio makes controlling audio and subtitle streams farcically easy. Create a button, and set it to jump to the video track in question. Now look at the Button Inspector at the bottom right of your screen.  Under the Advanced tab, look at the Streams subsection.


Simply select the audio stream and/or subtitle stream that you want to show. If you want to force the subtitles to display on the DVD player, click the "View" checkbox; if you leave that checkbox blank, it instead forces the player to hide the subtitles.


...And it really is that simple.  No fancy DVD scripting, nothing.
