Ideally, being able to prioritize languages would be great.

You CAN do it via default selection settings, assigning specific languages and even given them precedence over each other. But it isn't nearly as easy as picking from a pull-down

This prioritizes German of English and uses the HD audio track and forced subs are first:

app_DefaultSelectionString="-sel:all,+sel:(deu|eng|nolang),-sel:(core),-10:(forced*(eng)),-15:(deu),-20:(forced*(deu))"

Thanks i've take a look at it and it was really easy :)
if anybody want to do it replace "fre" with your second language three letter code

-sel:all,+sel:(favlang|fre),-sel:mvcvideo,=100:all,-10:favlang

Not really. If you rip

eng
deu

and flag deu as default yes, players like VLC will play deu instead of eng. But since not all standalones do this I also change to my preferred order

deu
eng

by adding the appropriate weights. Search for 'Changing track order in output file' where this is explained.
