Hi there,

I have a MKV file with 2 audio streams (ENG/JAP) and only ENG shows up as an audio stream.

Using mplayerc in windows I could select the alternate stream.

Is this a known bug?

You can do manual audio switching:


Create a text file with the same name as the mkv you got.

example: moviename.mkv
moviename.mkv.conf



Add the following line to the conf file:

aid=1

This will play the second audio stream.

This latest version of XBMC plays .mkv files w/audio? It only played the video before (July verison, I think). Maybe I should upgrade.

You must realy have an old version cuase mkv has been working for about a 8 months at least. The Prior issue was no audio SWITCHING. The remedy had been to use mkvtoolkit to change the default audio to the stream you desire to listen to.


Added:

The audio stream you desire to hear should be one supported by XBMC.

Ex mkv movie with mpeg and aiff audio wont have any sound becuase xbmc dosent support aiff

I had version 1 and the release on it was 07-17-04 or something. I found that .mkv files and a few .avi's with newer sound codecs wouldn't play audio.

I was using 07/29/2004 and it didn't switch. I'll lookup the codec the 2nd audio stream uses though. I assume they're the same but I'll have to check.
