CC/Audio Selection

Love the app, but since I’m beta testing I figured I’d do some testing:

Turning on CC doesn’t do anything. I’ve also tried changing the audio from English to Spanish (I don’t speak Spanish but just testing) and it doesn’t change the audio stream.

Here’s the mediainfo of a piece of the channel I just tuned to for testing it:

It’s possible the track is marked Spanish but is still in English.

I hadn’t thought of that, so tested it out a different way… For Spanish audio, it’s working on tvOS and iOS playing 40 Year Old Virgin on Spike, so disregard that one.

But, tvOS Channels playing 40 Year Old Virgin has the CC showing up, but it’s not showing up on iOS Channels.

I can get you a sample of it if you want, I grabbed a little piece of it in case you did.

Strange, the CC code is the same as on tvOS and was working for me. Will investigate…

I just tried CC on ABC, CBS, FOX, NBC and PBS. None of them showed captions.

Confirmed that CC is not working. Will try to fix for next beta…

Awesome thanks for looking into it.
