I want to connect the output of my laptop to a projector and beam a movie on the wall.
The movie has video and audio, but I would like to be able to play different audio tracks while the video is playing.
Is this possible?

You can use VLC to remove the default audio (
Keep original video track in the profile options, uncheck
Audio. Use a new profile to leave other settings intact!).
VLC can open additional audio at
Advanced Open File... ->
Show more options.
Download: VLC media player
Using the instructions from Tamschi, on this page, I was able to do a one-shot play of a video with another file as its audio track. The following instructions do not make any permanent changes.
I tested this with VLC on Windows 10, though every VLC running anywhere should work exactly the same.
For many alternate audio tracks, I believe you would select more than one audio track at step 11. I did not have more than one audio track to test this with.
(The file selection window)
Click "Select" at the bottom-right
(You will now see all three fields filled out)
Right-click in the video > Audio > Audio Track
It may take a few moments of play for VLC to get things sorted out. You may see video corruption or stuttering. Be patient!
