Play 3 language tracks in mp4 video

by mredmond / November 4, 2009 3:37 AM PST

I have a mp4 video recording that is spoken in English. There are several language tracks available - Spanish, Potuguese, French, Chinese, Russian, etc.

I have no problem playing English out the right channel and one other language out the left channel.

Is there any way to play a 3rd language out of a 3rd channel? I know I will need additional hardware, probably another sound card.

If anyone has a solution for me, I'd appreciate some help.
Thanks to all.

Ok, I am just guessing here;

It could be that they are using surround sound which means 5 channels can be created..or they might actually have 2 version of the same version movies but with different sound tracks. But like I said, I am just guessing since I have not ran into a 3 audio movie yet.

Good guess, but no. These are lectures given in English with simultaneous translation which was all recorded. Now we want to play back the lecture to a mostly English speaking audience but with the other languages transmitted via wireless radio to listeners with FM radios and headsets.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
