I have an entire season of Clannad with all the episodes in .mkv format. I play these files with VLC media player, and they have an english audio track and a japanese audio track; I watch with the english audio track.

I also happen to have another set of Clannad episodes, but in higher resolution (1080p); however these files don't have an english audio track with them. These files are also in .mkv format.

I was wondering if it was possible to strip the english audio track from the lower resolution video files and to attach the english audio track to the higher resolution video files. I'm not very experienced or knowledgeable in this field, but any help is appreciated!

Well, I only know how to strip the audio track from a video.
Just using a video converter.

But how to attach this audio track to another video file?
Sorry. I have no idea.

What software will you use to edit the video? Here is a link to a free mkv video editor: http://www.****/video-editor/how-to-edit-mkv-videos.html
I have never used it so I can't say whether or not it is any good.
