An update on that as well:

The names of audio streams are only shown if specified in ini file, otherwise if you open the matroska file directly it merely says stream 1...3.

My wish is that the player can take advantage of the information provided in the container as The Core Media Player does. (It actually partly does with chapter namess!!!)
It is even possible to provide link IDs for each file in mkvmerge if you have to split the movie on 2 or more CDs.
Doing so the player would know that there's are at least one or more parts following.
Also, the chapter thumbnail file could be embedded via attachment.
In future versions as long as the player doesn't find extra (meta) files such as an ini/bsi it could use the internal embedded data provided.

But that is demanding... not even the Core Media team which is close to the matroska developpers is planning that way and they are very ambitious... :roll:
Keep forum organized and use the search button !! :o
