Question

1 video output playing 2 audio languages simultaneously?

Good afternoon! Just joined this forum in the hope I can find an answer to my problem! I've tried searching online but found no answers so far. This is the issue:

I'd like to be able to insert a DVD in my PC and be able to play the video with 2 languages at the same time via different outputs. So basically I'd have a external sound card that has 2 audio outputs and I'd like to be able to tell the media player to stream English to output1 and Spanish to output2. This way if I have the headphones plugged into output1 I can watch the movie in English and the other person can hear Spanish in their headphones on output2.

With only 1 video playing though of course.

Is this possible? I'm having real trouble finding a solution to this!


Thanks in advance!
Lee.

So far no player does this.

That's why you didn't find a solution. You may have to put it into a PC to play and record the one language (maybe with AUDACITY) then play the DVD on the DVD player on the TV and play the second track from the PC.

How do they do it?

I see, thank you. However airplanes for example do this right? I mean sometimes there is 1 big screen in the middle of the plane and every passenger has a remote and a headphones. If they select channel 1 its in English and channel 2 in Spanish. They are already streaming the audio, you just log into it? How do they do this? I assume its a piece of software or is this specific hardware doing it?

Airplanes don't use consumer players.

It's all setup in advance on gear you don't see in the consumer channel. But there are ways to rip the dvd (which we don't discuss on this CBS forum) and create a custom dvd. Most of the time I find folk put off by all the work to create such a thing.

I don't know if that's possible but...

I have play dvd which have 2 different sound track with 2 languages at the same time, one on the right and the other on the left. Very confusing if you didn't know what was going on.
