Understand me....

To correctly choose the desired language, right now, the user must select mms-all and during the playback, chose the right audio track.
 This will force the server to streams all tracks -> bandwidth usage more than expected and reaaly needed.

With The Patch, the correct language is chosen with the best quality but without all unecessary streams...

all-mms is still usable to catch all streams....
