Yeah, I haven't implemented this yet and I might not do this in the
future as mplayer now seems to be able to switch audio on the fly - this
just needs to be supported by the mplayer-plugin (hint, hint!).

This AID stuff has more problems of that kind that you encountered, too:
If you have a VOB file with AC3 sound the audio ids are again different
and if the VOB file has PCM audio you need a different aid again...

Sorry, I know you send me a patch for this some time ago and it is in my
developement branch but I didn't update the "stable" branch.

I hope to get a new version out end of July.
