i've been reading <http://www.w3.org/TR/2009/WD-media-frags-20091217/#media-fragment-syntax> and the track option looks like an option, but the track feature need to removed from the URI/URL

there also a vtrack option for video tracks and atrack option for audio tracks

<source type="video/ogg" src="mymovie.ogg" vtrack="1" atrack="1" />
<source type="video/ogg" src="mymovie.ogg" vtrack="2" atrack="2" />
<source type="video/ogg" src="mymovie.ogg" vtrack="3" atrack="3" />
