Multi Language & Multi Audio
Multi audio tracks
Bitmovin supports multiple audio/language tracks, without the need of duplication or repackaging the video, either for live or on-demand content. Due to the flexibility of DASH, content publishers can easily provide multiple language tracks for video assets, where our players support multi-bitrate audio tracks also in multi-language scenarios. bitdash further includes functionalities that allows viewers to instantaneously switch to an alternate audio track either before or during playback.
Bitmovin also supports subtitles and closed captions. Switching during playback of the video to different subtitles is possible. The subtitles are fully separated from the original video files.
