Roku Media Player 5.1 update breaks multiple audio track selection in MKV files
The reason I am making yet another thread is I have no idea what the developers are doing with regard to issue tracking. Since the Roku Media Player update has a LOT of broken features and bugs, and they don't seem to be rolling it back this time, I have no idea where to be reporting new bugs and issues found. It doesn't seem likely developers are going to see posts buried in the many different threads on the topic, where each thread has a lot of chatter not directly relating to found bugs.
Anyways, I just found this pretty major bug in the "new" Roku Media Player (version 5.1, build 3):
On MKV files with multi audio tracks, it is no longer possible to play anything other than the default track. The original Roku Media Player allowed users to select the track, and even displayed the track names as entered in MKVToolNix/MKVMerge. Now, on the menu brought up by pressing "*" during playback, the "Audio track <Default>" option is greyed out, and when highlighting the option, the text above the menu says, "Only the default audio track is available".
MKV was being played via network DLNA. It had three audio tracks - 5.1 surround, stereo, and commentary. Original Roku Media Player handled it fine. Other DLNA clients (smart TV, Blu-Ray player) also handle it fine.
