I started off with this thread, but found the forum getting asked the same question over and over again about seamless branching, audio overlaps etc etc. It seems that there are plenty of users who can't really be bothered with the command line. This is a real shame.
However, even presented with the answer on a plate; some users still didn't get it. I'd been thinking about a GUI for some time, but not really being a programmer in this field lacked the tools, energy and interest.
However, I did it. Here's the 81st public release:

Clown_BD - Another Handy Little Program, No Clowning Around!!!
Clown_BD v0.79 (ca 324kb)
Here are some of the 1st prototype screen shots. Since then, it's advanced some.
To sum it up in one sentence: Clown_BD will enable you to extract (on the fly) the main movie and language streams of your choice, resulting in either transport streams (for Media Jukebox), an ISO image (for PowerDVD) or even a burned BD disk (for standalone players).
- Input - HD-DVD/Blu-Ray Structures, MPLS or single M2TS/TS/EVO/MKV files
- Extract AC3 core (from True-HD) or DTS Core (From DTS-MA)
- Convert audio to AC3/DTS (Optionally Choose bitrate)
- Change language of audio/subtitle stream
- Change order of audio/subtitle stream automatically based on preferences, and manual override
- Extract Blu-Ray Forced Subtitles
- Convert HD-DVD Subtitles to Blu-Ray
- Automatically Activate Forced Subtitles In Your Preferred Language
Create ISO or Burn To Disc
- Call to imgburn to create ISO
- Burn directly with ImgBurn
Multilingual User Interface
There are still some todos:
- Call eac3to for (at least 1st playlist) immediately after 1st sucessfull call - preserving each subsquent call
- Convert BD structure to VCD & SVCD format (just a joke)
Select some options:
Select your default locations:
eac3to is called, and the playlists are presented to you. Select one and proceed:
eac3to is called, and the video, audio and subtitle streams are presented to you. Select what you want and proceed.
eac3to is called and saves all the streams you selected.
a meta file for tsMuxer are created & tsMuxeR is executed.
If AVCHD mode is selected, then all files are renamed to 8.3 standard.
If you selected a .ISO image, then ImgBurn is called after after tsMuxer is completed.
Finally a sound is played - especially usefull if you leave you PC unattended, so you can hear it from another room.
