Defaulting client audio format

Post by kuhnboy » Sun Nov 23, 2014 6:51 pm

Is there a way to tell the server to default a specific client type to an audio format? I have most of my videos encoded with a stereo and surround audio track. I would like for the TwonkyServer to default to use the surround track with the Xbox client.

I don't think that is possible, as its really the client that is making the choice
not sure if it there is even a way in the dlna spec to force an audio track choice to the client

also track order can make a difference for client compatability
as somewhat of an example, no matter what is being used to stream to it twonky or other,
on an Apple TV, if the first audio track is AC3 and the second is AAC it wont play at all
but if the first audio track is AAC and the second is AC3 then it will play
