2021-06-01 | Setup & production | Encode and deliver audio / language versions | Creating a live stream with multiple audio channels
The standard live streaming formats do NOT allow the player to select an audio channel. This means that a (complete) audio / video signal is made available for the player. A live channel is required for each audio / video version. At e. g. five language versions, five live channels must be booked and are then available for viewing in the player.
The individual language versions (live channels) can then be called up on different project pages. This is recommended if texts in the respective language version are to be displayed in addition to the audio. In addition, we also offer the option of audio selection in the player controls to offer.
If sufficient resources are available, an audio / video signal is therefore encoded “on location” for each audio / language version and sent to the streaming server via upload.
