Access alternate audio tracks

Alternate audio uses MediaPlayer to play a video that is specified in an M3U8 HLS playlist and that can contain several alternate audio streams.

  1. Wait for the MediaPlayer to be in at least the MediaPlayerStatus.PREPARED status.

  2. Listen for the MediaPlayerEvent.STATUS_CHANGED event with status MediaPlayerStatus.PREPARED.

    This step means that the initial list of audio tracks is available.

  3. Get the available audio tracks from the MediaPlayerItem instance.

  4. (Optional) Present the available tracks to the user.

  5. Set the selected audio track on the MediaPlayerItem instance.
