Roku Media player Options Audio track

Hello Roku Devs,

I am new to Roku development and I got opportunity to work on Roku.

In mpd file , I see2 audio tracks with lang = "en", one of the tracks is the Audio descriptive track.

<Component: roAssociativeArray> =

{

    Format: "ISO/IEC 14496-3, Advanced Audio Coding, ASC header"

    Language: "en"

    Name: ""

    Track: "dash/a~AAC~en~alternate~2"

}

<Component: roAssociativeArray> =

{

    Format: "ISO/IEC 14496-3, Advanced Audio Coding, ASC header"

    Language: "en"

    Name: ""

    Track: "dash/a~AAC~en~main~2"

}

 

When I play the content, press the "options" key, then the player option displayed with CC, audio track, accessibility, etc. But Both the audio track is displayed as "English". Is it possible to change the name of the track in player options?

Hi @Victor_Dev,

I'm fairly certain that the Roku OS displays the language specified in the content's metadata. You can read more about how the Roku OS selects the audio track to be played here.

Note that audio track selection directly in RMP for mkv has not been working for quite a while now.  Used to work.
