Introduction

Muvi supports different formats of video and audio content. We also support videos embed with different formats of audios (i.e. videos with multiple audio languages, tracks, channels, etc.). You can upload different formats of videos with multiple audio formats. After encoding all the audio formats in the videos remains intact and when the end-users play the video, our player is capable to play most of the audio formats whether it is mono, stereo, surrounding, Dolby, etc.  

 

Audio Channels

The audio channel is a passage or communication route in which a sound signal is carried from the player source to the speaker. A single audio file can have one, two, or more channels. The number of channels is the amount of sound source when the sound is recording or the relevant speaker number when it is playback.

Types of Audio Channels:

  • Mono: Mono is the reproduction of sound using a single channel, which is a more basic form of sound reproduction. It is meant to be heard as if it were a single channel of sound seeming as coming from a single position.
  • Stereo: Stereo has audio on two channels. The sound is reproduced by using two or more independent audio channels.
  • 4.0 surround sound: It uses four channels which include four points of articulation: left on the front, right on the front, left on the back, and right on the back, while the audience is surrounded by the sound.
  • 5.1 surround sound: To create surround sound, a 5.1 surround sound system uses six channels (5 standards + 1 subwoofer). It includes a center speaker, subwoofer (for low-frequency effects, such as explosions), left and right front speakers, and left and right rear speakers. 5.1 surround sound is achieved with AC-3 (Dolby Digital) or DTS. DTS uses less compression but is also less common than Dolby Digital.

Audio Tracks

A track is a container for audio, used to keep different sources separate. A track can contain any number of audio channels. For instance, a stereo audio track contains two audio channels, as it is comprised of a left mono feed and a right mono feed. A 5.1 audio track contains six audio channels. On most recorders, you can set up your tracks with differing numbers of channels.

 

Audio Language

Multiple audios in different languages can be added to a single video in different tracks. When users play such type of videos, they have the option to select their preferred audio language from the player. For example, while watching the movie Titanic, users can select to watch it either in English, Hindi or in Spanish depending on the number of audios in different languages integrated into the video.
