Correct playlists for Iron Giant Blu-ray

This disc has not been obfuscated for copy protection but the correct playlist is not immediately obvious.

There are 2 slightly different versions of the movie on this disc, the original version and the Signature Edition. The signature edition is slightly longer (1:29:58 vs 1:26:39) and at least one slightly altered scene (when the giant's hand is watching TV, it's watching a commercial for Tomorrowland, so apparently this was changed to put this in the same universe as the other Brad Bird film?).

There are multiple playlists with the same segment map, but different options for audio/subs. I'm operating under the assumption that these are for commentaries or whatever. The playlists with full foreign language audio/subs are 00100.mpls for the original version and 00099.mpls for the Signature Edition and that's what I'm currently ripping.

I just got my copy from Amazon today. Wanted to put on my Plex server for my son. Let me know if you are able to grab the right playlist.

I ripped the regular edition. Are there subtitles? I don't remember, it's been a long time since I saw the movie. I skimmed what I had and it looks right.

Which language did you end up using? I'm struggling to find one with English.

What's going on with the commentary tracks? They seem to not be secondary audio tracks. But are different playlists that require ripping a complete whole 25GB movie.

If this is so, is there a way to manipulate the files to make the commentary tracks secondary audio tracks embedded in the main movie?

I just got my copy of the Iron Giant Signature Edition today... sure enough, the commentary tracks are completely separate from the "regular" movies.

The good news is after you've ripped the Theatrical and "Signature" Editions of the films, and their corresponding commentary track playlists, you can use MKVToolNix to extract the commentary tracks, and then remux them into the MKVs without the commentaries. Pretty straightforward with this tool.
