Thank you for this simple explanation/reminder:

> Reminder : by default ffmpeg keeps only 1 video track and 1 audio
> track (so here you are implicitely dropping the second audio track and
> the subtitle track). "-map 0" means that you keep all the tracks
> present in the input file. "-map 0:0 -map 0:2 -map 0:3" means that you
> want to kepp the video track, the second audio track, and the subtitle
> track.
When digging through the archives for guidance this kind of advice,
however simple it may seem, is gold.
