    Guide to encode WMV file with multi-language audio tracks

    Tools required:
    Windows Media Encoder

    This document describes the basic instruction for creating a WMV file with multi-language audio tracks. The tool used is Windows Media Encoder which is free software available from Microsoft website.

    Index:
    1. Encode 1 Video (WMV) and 3 Audio (WMA) files
    2. Edit Windows Media files to same length/duration
    3. Mux 3 WMA tracks with the WMV video
    4. Verify that final encoded WMV file has 3 audio tracks


    1. Encode 1 Video (WMV) and 3 Audio (WMA) files:
    Use Windows Media Encoder to create a WMV video only file and three WMA audio files with different language settings for each as described below. You can also create 1 WMV with audio file and 2 WMA audio only file.
    • Open Windows Media Encoder from Start -> Programs -> Windows Media
    • Select “Custom Session” as shown in the screen-shot below:


    • Under the “Session Properties” -> “Source” tab, select the ‘source form’ as ‘File’ and browse the source video or audio file as shown in the screen-shot below:


    • Under the “Session Properties” -> “Output” tab, select the ‘encode to file’ option and select a output file name as shown in the screen-shot below:


    • Under the “Session Properties” -> “Compression” tab, select the ‘edit’ button and set the encoding option like bitrate and language option, as shown in the screen-shot below:


    • Make sure that all WMA files are encoded with same bitrate settings.


    2. Edit Windows Media files to same length/duration:
    This is a optional step required only if the WMV and WMA files are of different durations. If all the files have same duration, then skip this section.
    • Open Windows Media File Editor from Start -> Programs -> Windows Media -> Utilities
    • Open the WMV/WMA files and use the Mark In/Mark Out options to edit the files to the same duration and save.



    3. Mux 3 WMA tracks with the WMV video:
    • Open Windows Media Stream Editor from Start -> Programs -> Windows Media -> Utilities


    • Select “Add Source…” and browse to the folder containing WMV and WMA files.


    • Select all the WMV and WMA files


    • Expand all the source files and check the box for Video and Audio as shown in the screen-shot below:


    • Select the “Add ->” button, the Output audience should appear as shown below:


    • Select “Create File…” and type a file name for output file and click the start button.


    4. Verify that final encoded WMV file has 3 audio tracks:
    • Open the created WMV file in Windows Media Player
    • Verify that a audio track is playing along with video
    • From the Play menu, select “Audio and Language tracks” and verify that the 3 audio tracks are available as shown in the screen-shot below:

    • Verify that selecting a different audio language track will play that particular audio track.
